Leaders and activists of Muktijoddha Sangsad Santan Command on Monday blockaded the Shahbagh intersection in the capital with a seven-point demand, including reinstatement of 30% freedom fighter quota in all government jobs.

Giving VIP status to freedom fighters everywhere including hospitals, government offices, and airports is also among the demand.

More than 200 leaders and activists of Muktijoddha Sangsad Santan Command formed a human chain in front of the National Museum at Shahbagh.

Later they blockaded the Shahbagh intersection for more than an hour, creating long tailbacks on all sides of the area. Police later dispersed them.

The protesters threatened to continue blockade from January 23 if the government did not pay any heed to their demand.
