You must have noticed the broken down CNG auto rickshaws during a
rain. Have a little chat with your auto rickshaw driver when you ride
one. He will give you an account of what he has experienced in repairing
the rickshaw after he drove through a submerged street. It is also
frequent that sometimes CNG auto rickshaws do not start when the driver
stops the engine during a traffic jam or a signal. The death of three
firefighters and the driver on 6th June in a collision with a covered
van proves that these vehicles do not have a strong structure either.
These auto rickshaws started to visit the workshops too soon. Auto
rickshaw importers should think about what they are bringing home
and paying money for that. Spending money for such a vehicle that
will not run trouble free for at least a year is obviously a loss
for the nation in the long run.
CNG auto rickshaws are not demanding extra bucks any more. Surprising
isn't it? What is more surprising is that they are running with petrol
instead of gas.
the striking interns
Interns of Rajshahi Medical College Hospital went on a strike recently
protesting the death of a fellow doctor. They held the hospital authority
responsible for the death. Their mismanagement, lack of drugs and
medical equipment in the hospital was to blame. It is obvious that
the interns were going through a period of distress after the death
of their colleague. However, that does not justify their action. Because
of the strike patients of RMCH suffered immensely. Many of them had
to shift to private clinics. Moreover, doctors never react like this
or even care when innocent people die for the same reason. Patients
are frequently neglected in our hospitals. It is the solemn duty of
the doctors to serve the ill but they are regularly held responsible
for maltreatment of patients. This strike by doctors has to stop.
There must be a rational way to protest and solve the problems.
Non payment of bills
All but two of the telephone lines the Rajshahi City Corporation were
disconnected by BTTB recently for non-payment. RCC owed Tk19 lakh
to BTTB. There is also a list of other government offices that did
not pay their telephone bill. We, the humble citizens of this country
are wondering why did they fail to pay the bills?
