Hotel-restaurant owners observe indefinite strike in Kuakata

An indefinite strike is going on in hotels and restaurants in Patuakhali’s Kuakata in protest against the conduction of frequent raids of mobile court, causing suffering to the tourists.

Food Hotel-Restaurant Owners Association began the strike on Wednesday (August 17) morning.

Md Selim Mia, president of Food Hotel-Restaurant Owners Association, said, “We have been forced to keep our hotels and restaurants shut due to frequent raids of mobile courts. Executive magistrates on regular basis conducted mobile courts at the hotels and restaurants due to a trifling reason and fined them a large amount of money. We are now helpless by facing frequent raids and have no option but to shut our hotels. Therefore, our hotels and restaurants will remain closed until the administration gives us any solution to this end.”

Kalapara Upazila Nirbahi Officer Abu Hasnat Mohammad Shahidul Haque said, “Mobile courts are conducted so that tourists would not face any cheating in Kuakata. We have requested them to reopen the hotels.”
