Door to door sale of essentials is gaining popularity in Bagerhat Sadar Upazila.
People are happy that the vans (traditional three wheelers) are carrying fish, meat, local fruits, vegetables, grocery items and all everyday-goods right to their doorsteps amid pandemic.
This initiative was the idea of Bagerhat-2 (Sadar-Kachua) constituency Member of Parliament (MP), Sheikh Sarhan Naser Tanmoy, so that people don’t have to go to the markets which would eventually decrease the chances of Covid-19 virus spreading among the people.
Implemented by the district Juba League, 100 vans are serving the 10 unions of the Sadar upazila.
Juba League leaders believe it would be possible to keep people from the markets and at the same time, the van pullers would have a regular source of income.
