An indefinite transport strike is underway in Chapainawabganj district ahead of BNP’s divisional rally to be held in Rajshahi city on Saturday (3 December).
The strike began on Thursday morning. No bus left or entered Chapainawabganj from the other districts of the country, including capital Dhaka, since Wednesday evening. As a result, people are facing huge sufferings.
General Secretary of Chapainawabganj Transport Owners Association Hamidur Rahman Nannu confirmed the news.
Chapainawabganj BNP Convener Golam Jakaria said the strike had been called to refrain the leaders and activists from joining the rally.
However, transport owners leader Hamidur Rahman Nannu said we have called the strike to press home our 10-point demands.
BNP is holding divisional public rallies to press for its different demands, including immediate resignation of the government and holding the next general election under a non-party administration.
The party held rallies in Chattogram, Mymensingh, Khulna, Rangpur, Barishal, Faridpur, Sylhet and Cumilla, braving various obstacles and transport strikes.
BNP will conclude the divisional rallies through a mass gathering in Dhaka city on 10 December, coinciding with International Human Rights Day.
