Cold wave caused suffering to the poor

The northernmost district of the country, Panchagarh, is experiencing thick fog and cold waves as the temperature continues to decrease with the onset of winter. The lowest temperature was recorded in Tetulia on Thursday. 

The roads continue to be covered in fog all day, and people can only see the sun for a moment in the afternoon. The temperature starts to drop as evening falls. 

The thick fog causes people on the roads to get wet, so they burn straws to keep themselves warm. The poor are unable to get out of their houses.

Abdul Quddus, a day labourer in Bolayapara area, said that it is hard to see anything due to the dense fog. There is no work available for him even though he arrived in town in the morning.

Joynal Haque, a van driver, said the intensity of winter is slowly increasing. He does not get any passengers from morning till noon. 

The lowest temperature in the whole country was recorded at 11°C  at 8 am and 10.5 °C  at 9 am on Thursday said Jitendra Nath Roy, a senior observer at the Tentulia Meteorological Center
