Launch operations have started for a few hours on Banglabazar-Shimulia and Daulatdia-Paturia routes to facilitate garments and other workers to come to Dhaka amid the ongoing 'strict restrictions'. At the request of traders, the government has given permission to reopen factories from August 1.

After the publication of this news, the workers have started coming to Dhaka from different parts of the country. They are coming to Dhaka in various ways including vans and rickshaws as public transports are not operated.

In this situation, the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) has allowed launch operations from Saturday evening.

Mohammad Mizanur Rahman, public relations officer of BIWTA said, "It has been decided to operate passenger launches across the country from this evening till 12pm on Sunday."

Explaining the reason, Mohammad Mizanur Rahman said, since the industrial factory is being opened from August 1. Therefore, considering the safe movement of the workers, the authorities have decided to operate launches on the waterway.
