All ferries on Paturia-Daulatdia route have been resumed to prevent overcrowding and demolition of structures. Since then all kinds of ferries have been running there.

BIWTC said this at around 8:30 pm on Wednesday.

State Minister for Shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury said efforts were made to keep people in Dhaka to prevent coronavirus infections. But people could not be stopped from going home. Accidents have also happened unexpectedly.

He added that there are many installations in the ghats and adjoining areas. Homebound angry mobs can damage those installations. Considering that it has been decided to open the ghats and ferries out of that fear.

Earlier, BIWTC opened all the ghats on the Shimulia-Banglabazar route.
