The protesters also threatened to go for tougher movement, if their demand goes unheeded
Commuters on Tuesday staged demonstrations at Joydebpur Railway Station in Gazipur for an hour to press home their 10-point demand, halting train communications of the district with the northern region.
Stoppages of nine inter-city trains in Gazipur and increasing the number of bogies of different trains were among their 10-point demand.
The commuters took position on the railway tracks at Joydebpur rail station in the morning. Three trains got stranded from 7am to 8am at the station following the demonstrations.
Engineer Md Shamsul Haque, president of Gazipur Passenger Community, said there is no stoppage of nine inter-city trains at the station, causing sufferings to the local commuters.
He said the commuters have to go to airport station to travel by inter-city trains as there is no stoppage of those trains at Joydebpur station.
They also demanded a flyover in the area as “vehicles remain stranded at the level crossing 72 times a day”.
The protesters also threatened to go for tougher movement, if their demand goes unheeded.
The movement of several trains was disrupted while the schedules of a number of trains got changed.
Local businessmen, lawyers, teachers and people of different profession took part in the protest program.
