Online Desk : Because of the ongoing floods and rains, the water level has increased at Kotalipara upazila in Gopalganj district.

As the boat is the only mode of transportation there, the selling of boats is booming at different local markets and manufacturers are also passing busy days.

Boats are being sold at around 10-15 hats of the upazila –the price starts from Tk 5,000 to Tk 15,000 depending on their sizes.

One boat trader Nihar Baroi at Kaliganj Bazar said demand and prices of boat are higher this year than that of the previous year.

Kolabari UP chairman Micheal Ojha said farmers and fishers usually buy boat every year during flood.

But, the scenario of this year is quite different. Common people also have to use boat as transportation while going office or market. For these reasons, the prices of boat are higher this year comparing the previous one.
