90 lakh people likely to leave Dhaka by road during Eid

Staff Reporter:

Around 1.50 crore people are expected to leave the greater Dhaka area for the celebration of upcoming holy Eid-ul-Fitr.
According to the National Committee to Protect Shipping, Roads and Railways (NCPSRR), around 1.50 crore people are expected to exit the greater Dhaka area, including Dhaka North, Dhaka South, Gazipur, and Narayanganj City Corporation areas.
An estimated 60 percent of these holidaymakers, roughly 90 lakh people, will opt for road travel, while the rest will utilise waterways and railways, a release of NCPSRR said.
NCPSRR general secretary Ashis Kumar Dey said that the report was compiled from a variety of sources, including research data, civic groups and transport sector organizations.
The release said that the government has already given necessary directives to the concerned authorities to smooth the Eid journey. Besides, the law enforcers including police and other concerned have taken necessary measures.
The leaders of the committee hoped that the sufferings of passengers during the Eid will be reduced due to the necessary steps of the concerned authorities.
Drawing from the latest census, the report details the population distribution within the Dhaka division, noting that about 75 percent of the country’s garment factories are in Gazipur. Workers, who predomi-nantly reside in the Gazipur region, contribute to the large-scale exodus during Eid.
Additionally, significant populations in Narayanganj and adjacent districts add to the surge of travelers seeking to return to their native places for the Eid holiday.
