Chittagong hills being razed for railway tracks, high credit card usage, among others feature in Friday's headlines

The Daily Star reports, Dohazari-Cox's Bazar railway track project has led to destruction of nature in Chittagong as hills were razed to make way for the 120km track, which is being built under a fast-track project of the government.

New Age reports, cold-related diseases are set to intensify challenges for the country's health system, already struggling to tackle the outbreak of Covid-19.

The Business Standard reports, plans for highly ambitious development projects are taken by the government but years later the projects hardly make any headway for lack of foresight, administrative issues and inefficiencies. Public Private Partnership (PPP) is one such area.

The Financial Express reports, the use of credit cards of the commercial banks and financial institutions in Bangladesh has gone up sharply, as their month-on-month transactions boosted by 50% within a year.

After a massive fall in credit card utilisation during the Covid-19 pandemic peak-time from April to June, the paperless transactions rebounded in the following two months - July and August.
