Our Correspondent


BOGRA, July 9: Thousands of commuters from several villages of Sariakandi, Sonatola, Gabtoly and sadar upazila of Bogra district are suffering much due to miserable condition of Chelopara-Naruly connector road from the genesis of rainy season.

Along with a large number people, the numerous vehicles, including human haulers,  are passing hard days as their movement is badly hampered following collapse of earth at some 200 places on Kaipara, Sabgram, Naruly and bypass road area.

Local people depend on cultivation of vegetable, jute, guava, papaya, jackfruit, lemon, banana and betel leaf for their livelihood. But now they cannot carry these products to Bogra headquarter for the bad condition of the road. They urged the authority concern to take the steps for repairing the road.

The affected areas of Sariakandi, Sonatola, Gabtoly and sadar upazila connectors' three kilometers long road is developing numerous potholes due to heavy rain, said rickshaw puller Rokonuzzanam,23, under Shabgra village of sadar upazila. "We cannot ply rickshaws on the road as the wheels fall into the holes", he added.

Mofazzal Hossain, a lecturer of non-government collage, said the road becomes a trap at night because there is not enough light on the street. Auto rickshaws often get overturned when they fall into a pothole, causing injuries to passengers, he added.

"It is very difficult to walk to school as the road is water-logged in most areas," said Alomgir Badra, president of Krishok League district unit. He again said, "Travelling on the road is very painful for patients who come to Bogra Sadar Hospital and other clinics that are beside the road."

"The road has not been repaired for many days, but we try to keep it usable by laying bricks," said Mukul Hossain district leader of student league. Whip of national parliament house of opposition party Nurul Islam Omar said, 'It is a problem for the dwellers because the road has not been repaired as yet. We have sent a letter to the ministry concerned, seeking fund for repairing the road," he added.
