No overload to be allowed in vessels during Eid

Staff Reporter, Barishal

The Barishal district administration yesterday held a meeting with officials of the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority, representatives of the Launch Owners' Association and members of different law enforcement agencies, including the river police, to discuss the best possible way to ensure safety for homebound passengers on Eid-special vessels.

It was decided at the meeting that no vessel will be allowed to overload passengers during the Eid vacation. If any vessel disobeys this directive, its route permit would be suspended. It was also decided that the authorities will examine the fitness of launches. All drivers have been ordered not to use their cell phones during driving.  

Barishal DC SM Ajior Rahman presided over the meeting in his room. Chamber president Saidur Rahman Rintu, port officer Ahmal Huda Mithu, BIWTC general manager (Barishal) Syed Abul Kalam Azad, journalist Murad Ahmed and others spoke at the meeting.  The meeting announced that round-the-clock mobile courts will be deployed in river, port and terminal areas during Eid-ul-Fitr to ensure the highest safety for passengers.  The river police representative at the meeting said they already increased their manpower by deploying 20 more persons from the Dhaka headquarters. Their duty would start right from tomorrow in 10 spots, including Barishal river port.  The meeting took 21 steps, including stopping the plying of goods-laden cargo and sand-laden cargo on the river, both before and after three days of Eid.
