Transport strike in Chapainawabganj, commuters facing sufferings

A transport strike is underway in Chapainawabganj, causing immense sufferings to commuters.

During visit it was seen no bus left or entered Chapainawabganj from the other districts of the country, including capital Dhaka, on Friday morning.  People were seen waiting on the roads in many areas, desperately looking for transports to reach their respective destinations.  As a result, auto-rickshaws are taking extra charges.

Chapainawabganj BNP Convener Golam Jakaria said the bus strike has been called to create an artificial crisis to obstruct their mass rally in Rajshahi. But our rally will succeed in defying all obstructions and it will turn into a sea of people.

However, General Secretary of Chapainawabganj Transport Owners Association Hamidur Rahman Nannu said the strike has been called to press home 10 demands including taking steps to stop plying of unauthorised three-wheelers.

The BNP’s divisional rally will be held in Rajshahi city on Saturday (3 December).

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.
