Back to Home

People, mostly workers of Roads and Highways Department and their family members, wait on the footpath of Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue near the capital’s Karwan Bazar before boarding trucks to Pirganj of Rangpur. They travelled to Narayanganj’s Kanchpur from Cumilla by different modes of transport amid a countrywide shutdown. From there, they had to walk on foot to reach Karwan Bazar to catch trucks which brought vegetables to the capital from different districts. After unloading the goods, the trucks would carry them to northern districts for Tk 300 to Tk 600. Photo: Anisur Rahman
