Indefinite transport strike is going on for the second consecutive day on Friday (December 2) for the 10-point demand in eight districts of Rajshahi division. The transport strike called by the Transport Owners-Workers Oikya Parishad has stopped the movement of vehicles on the Rajshahi route from Sirajganj.

This Friday morning, going to Sirajganj bus stand, it is seen that all the buses on Rajshahi route are stopped. Bus plying on internal routes of the district has been stopped. However, Dhaka-bound buses are running. Due to Friday being a holiday, the number of passengers is not that much. Passengers now rely only on CNG autorickshaws for intra-district movement. That is why CNG autorickshaw fares have increased since yesterday.

President of Sirajganj District Pea Workers’ Union, Sultar Mahmud, said that the strike is being held according to our pre-arranged program for the 10-point demand. A 3 day strike has been called as per our decision. However, if the demand is not met, this movement will continue.
