Mad pursuit of the root!

Homebound people made last-moment journey through various routes amid restriction on highway buses on Thursday.

Bangladesh will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr being one of the largest religious festivals for Muslims tomorrow.

Thumbing nose at the government restriction, people started to return to the roots a few days ago.

Large crowd at various ferry ghats pushed the BIWTC to operate the vehicle-carrying water vessels at Paturia-Daulatdia and Shimulia-Kathalbari routes to facilitate Eid journey.

In utter surprise, plenty of people are boarding ferries which are supposed to carry passenger buses and goods-laden trucks.

The country braces for another round corona spread with highways infested with homebound people.
