Staff reporter, Barishal

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) and private launch operators will start special services in Barishal from June 12 to deal with the excessive pressure of passengers on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.

The decision came yesterday after a meeting of district administration, officials of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority, representatives of launch owners association, law enforcing agencies and river police to ensure safe water transport management during Eid rush.

Deputy Commissioner of Barishal Habibur Rahman presided over the meeting.

Mustafizur Rahman, deputy director (river safety and traffic management) BIWTA Barishal office, said the special launch service will begin operation from June 12 and continue until June 22. Thirty five launches will begin operation as eid special service. BIWTA instructed launch owners to operate 23 triple-decker luxurious launches on Dhaka-Barishal route and other 10 launches on Dhaka-Jhalakathi, Pirojpur, Patuakhali, Barguna via Barisal river port.

Law enforcement agencies will take special security measures in the river area during Eid-ul-Fitr. No passenger vessels should be allowed to leave the terminals overloaded during Eid vacation, he said.

Volunteers from Bangladesh National Cadet Core (BNCC), Rover Scouts and the Girls Guide helped the river police to control the law and order situation in all the ghat areas. Vigilance teams will be deployed for monitoring the activities. A special medical team will be set up in terminal area.
