Where the concerned administration already instructed to put off the ferry service temporarily in Barak due to increased water level, the situation seems the opposite.
Despite the rising water level in the Barak River, the ferry service still continuing in Barak river. Private boat operators are busy earning money without worrying about the lives of the passengers. many people are also travelling in boat forgetting the pandemic.
This is not the end, passengers do not agree to maintain social and physical distance while crossing the river, even most of the passengers including the boatman are not wearing masks.
Abul Hussain Majumder, the divisional officer of Itkhola ferry ghat, also raised voice above boatmen about the matter but in return, he was threatened by them. Same thing happening at other ferries of the district. During this monsoon, the matter sought more intervention of the concerned department.
