Commuters suffer due to flyover construction, influx of illegal rickshaws, road digging

Shariful Islam and Helemul Alam
Numerous rickshaws moving haphazardly clog the road under the Khilgaon flyover in the capital on the second day of Ramadan yesterday. In the month leading to Eid-ul-Fitr, the number of rickshaws increases on Dhaka streets. Many poor people from different other districts come to the city to make some bucks by pulling rickshaws ahead of the festival. Photo: Sk Enamul Haq
