An indefinite transport strike is going to start two days before the mass rally in Rajshahi. For this, BNP leaders and activists have already started flocking to Rajshahi.

BNP’s Rajshahi Divisional Organizing Secretary Ruhul Quddus Talukdar Dulu said, “Wherever BNP is holding rally, there is a transport strike. The government is doing a ridiculous drama. People are laughing at this. Is it increasing the government’s popularity? I think this transport strike shows how much this government is afraid of BNP.
