Locals demand repair of Saghata road immediately

Consequently, people who have to use the road for travel everyday, are suffering to a great extent.

Local people said they along with Water Development Board had tried to save the road from flood water putting sand bags on it, but all of their efforts went into vain.

During a visit on the road, this correspondent found that a number of big potholes had developed on the road making it unfit for vehicular movement.

Rustom Ali, chairman of Jumarbari union parishad, told the Dhaka Tribune school-going children were suffering most.

Children of eight villages use the road to go to their educational institutions, but now they have to face difficulties while going to the schools and colleges.

Rustom Ali said flood water receded, but the authorities concerned did not take any measure to repair the road.

Jainal Abedin, a resident of Jumarpara village, said about 20,000 people of Jumarbari and Holdia union parishads use the road. People of the locality had to walk on the road due to its poor state.

Khorshed Alam, a trader at Jumarbari Bazar, said he had to bring goods from district headquarters in an alternative way spending additional money.

Sabiul Islam, engineer of Local Government Engineering Department, told the Dhaka Tribune that they had already informed the authorities concerned about the matter.

He said after getting fund, they would start repair of the road.
