Jatri Kalyan Samity calls for withdrawal of bus fare hike

Jatri Kalyan Samity, a passengers' welfare organization, has urged the government to withdraw the decision of bus fare hike.

The organisation secretary general Mozammel Huque raised the demand in statement on Sunday.

The government issued a gazette notification raising the bus fare by 60 per cent on condition of operating the transports maintaining health guidelines. The increased fare will come into effect across the country from Monday.

Terming the bus fare hike 'illogical' Mozammel said, "The government in unilaterally raised 60 per cent bus fare hike as part of bus owners' trap which is illogical. Through this decision the government has ignored the passengers’ rights and it  will create a fare chaos and passengers’ harassment will increase.

Mozammel said the government in an unfair way raised the fare without making any engagement of passengers before fixing the fare. Common people will not accept the bus fare hike, he added.

He asked the government to withdraw the bus fare hike as soon as possible.
