Paturia Ghat crowded with holidaymakers returning to Dhaka
Paturia ferry ghat was crowded with holidaymakers starting to return to Dhaka and surrounding districts after celebrating Eid-ul-Azha at their village homes.
"On the Paturia-Daulatdia waterway, there are 12 ferries running," BIWTC Aricha Regional Office Deputy General Manager, Zillur Rahman said, adding that, "In a short time, the vehicles stranded on the wharf will be able to be cross."
On the other hand, hundreds of passenger coaches and more than 50 cars were seen waiting to pass.
Many said they are going to their village on the second day of Eid to avoid the stress and suffering of traveling before Eid.
