All types of fuel oil prices have increased in the local market. In view of this, the transport owners will hold a meeting with the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) on Saturday (August 6) to adjust the fare of public transport.

Dhaka Road Transport Owners Association leader Khandkar Enayet Ullah confirmed this information. He said that the meeting will be held at 5 pm.

Meanwhile, the launch owners sat in a meeting among themselves in the morning to adjust the fare. Leader of Launch Owners Association Siddiqur Rahman Patwari said that they will sit with the government soon on the agenda discussed in their meeting. However, the date of the meeting has not yet been finalized.

The government last night raised the prices of diesel and kerosene to Tk 114 per litre and that of petrol to Tk 135, which is nearly 52 percent higher than the current rate.
