The commuters of different parts of Dhaka have been struggling due to the lack of public transports from Saturday morning.
CNG-run auto-rickshaws and rickshaws were taking advantage of the untoward situation by overcharging passengers.
Earlier on Friday, the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources issued a press release stating the sudden hike in the prices of oils.
Bus drivers and helpers said the owners are waiting for the government to adjust the bus fares.
Transport owners will sit with Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) on Saturday afternoon to discuss an adjustment of the fares in the light of the fuel price hike.
