Around over 150 goods-laden trucks are stranded on Daulatdia-Paturia ferry route due to strong currents in the River Padma.
Daulatdia ghat Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) sources confirmed the matter around 10am on Thursday.
BIWTC Daulatdia ghat assistant manager Md Mahbub Hossain said the strong currents have increased as water rises in the river. For this, ferries are taking double time to cross the river. A long tailback was seen at the ghat.
