BIWTA launches hotline to receive complaints

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) has launched a 24-hour hotline to stop passenger harassment at river ports and also to record complaints on pollution and illegal grabbing of rivers.

Anyone can dial to the hotline on 01304004003 and 01304004006 from anywhere to record their grievances and complaints regarding the illegal occupation and pollution of Buriganga, Turag and Bali rivers.

The service, launched on Monday night, is now available to citizens 24/7 a day, said a press release issued Tuesday.

Earlier on February 2, the High Court ordered that river encroachers cannot run in any elections or get bank loans in efforts to save rivers from greedy grabbers.

The HC also ordered the government to make a list of every grabber in the country and publish the list in the media to expose them to the public.
