It’s not on fire | The Daily Star


A water bus plying the Gabtoli-Badamtoli route emits pitch black smoke, polluting environment on the way and giving rise to the question if it is properly maintained. In 2010, BIWTC initiated two waterbuses but could not attract enough passengers mainly due to a lack of landing facilities, inadequate trips and higher fares compared to buses. Four other vessels added in 2013 were no success too. photo: Anisur Rahman
