District Hotel-Motel Owners Association President Amal Kanti Das said that they hoped that the tourism business would be boosted this time during the long Eid holiday. But the incidents of Ruma and Thanchi have made tourism worse than before.

According to the information of the Hotel-Motel-Resort Owners Association, there are more than 100 hotels-motels and vacation centers in Ruma, Rowangchari and Thanchi upazilas, including 70 in district towns and suburbs. Due to the negative impact of tourism, about 1,000 direct and indirect employees of hotels and motels, 250 tourist guides, more than 500 drivers, driver's assistants, and 150 motorized boat drivers have become unemployed.

Sirajul Islam, general secretary of the Hotel-Motel Owners Association, said that the district currently has accommodation for 6,000 tourists. Unlike every tourist, people involved in local 11 sectors can directly benefit from tourism in terms of income. Accordingly, the income of 66 thousand people in the tourism sector has declined.
