Transport owners in Chattogram, Khagrachhari, Rangamati call off strike

A transport strike which was announced in North Chattogram, Rangamati, and Khagrachhari protesting the requisition of buses by police during political rallies has been called off.

 

Monjur Alam Monju, leader of Chattogram Road Transport Owners’ Group, made the announcement after a meeting between the bus owners and police on Thursday afternoon.

 

Earlier on Wednesday night, the group went on strike in North Chattogram, Khagrachhari and Rangamati from Thursday morning. Commuters using these routes had to suffer as the owners suddenly made the announcement.
