No one to take care of Sylhet bus terminal
According to local sources, the terminal was build up in 2007 in the tenure of non-party Caretaker Government. But, later the repair of the terminal had not been done. Selim Ahmed Folik, president of Sylhet Transport Union, said they had organised different programmes demanding the repair of the terminal. But the concern authorities did not take any steps. When this correspondent visited the area, he found that a lot of potholes developed at many points and the water accumulated in the holes. Water cannot be released through the tunnels as dirt and wastes blocked it. The terminal goes under water during rainy season and the vehicles remain standstill. Power disruption is common incident and the passengers have to face critical situation at night as the luggage and valuables are snatched by miscreants. The passengers who come from a long distance suffer more as there are no good restaurants and the toilets at the station cannot be used for its broken-down situation. Some passengers alleged that they cannot sit under sheds at the bus stand as its are occupied by miscreants like gamblers and addicts. Ripon Das, in-charge of the terminal police out post, said they conducted drive when they got information about the miscreants. Khandokar Mohosin Kamran, lease holder of the terminal, said they could not take steps about the terminal as the city corporation owned the responsibility. When conducted, Enamul Habib, executive officer of Sylhet City Corporation, said a project of Tk30 lakh had been taken to repair the terminal.
