Convener of the PRPF, Rafiur Rabbi in the human chain said, BRTC is a public transport organization but for two years they did not provide any service in Narayanganj. When the BRTC bus service re-started in the area after two years, racketeers and extortionists attacked the bus counter.

There are plans to stop the BRTC bus service in Narayanganj. Local transport extortionists are in cahoots with the transportation owners restrain BRTC buses in plying Narayanganj. It was also seen that those involved in the attack on the BRTC bus counter were not arrested, the PRPF President added.

But on Friday, the BRTC's temporary bus Counter that was placed in Chashara, was attacked by the local extortionists.
