Mad rush of home-goers is prevailing in Shimulia ghat area. There was a pressure on the Shimulia ferry ghat in Munshiganj for last several days, but passenger pressure has increased from Wednesday morning. There is no place to put one’s foot in the ghat area.

Thousands of people are returning home by ferry without paying attention to the corona infection in the country. On the Shimulia-Banglabazar route, 15 ferries have been plying on the Padma River from the morning.

The government has suspended long-route bus services as a result people left Dhaka in cars, microbuses, CNG-run auto-rickshaws, pick-up vans, trucks, ambulances, motorcycles and covered vans ahead of Eid.

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) Manager (Finance) Md Foysal Ahmed said as per government order 15 ferries are being operated on the route. About three hundred, goods-laden vehicles are waiting at Shimulia ghat to cross the river.
