RMG workers were demanding their due wages while CNG-run auto-rickshaw drivers sought relief goods

The workers of an RMG factory have taken to the streets for outstanding wages while the CNG-run auto-rickshaw drivers have demonstrated demanding relief goods in Chittagong city.

Several hundred workers of Frank Garments Ltd staged a demonstration at the Badamtali intersection of the Agrabad area under Double Mooring police station in the city on Saturday morning.

The agitating apparel workers complained that they were compelled to protest as their wages for March have remained outstanding.

On information, police rushed to the spot to calm the agitating apparel workers.   

Sadip Kumar Das, officer-in-charge of Double Mooring police station told Dhaka Tribune that factory authorities have assured the workers they will get paid by April 28.

Meanwhile, several hundred CNG-run auto-rickshaw drivers also staged demonstrations at the Boropool area under Halishahar police station in the city, according to the police.

Roads were closed for an hour from 11:00am as the demonstrators put up a blockade which caused severe traffic congestion.

The CNG-run auto-rickshaw drivers said they were struggling to make a living because of the shutdown in the city to contain coronavirus.

Rafiqul Islam, Officer-in-Charge of Halishahar police station told Dhaka Tribune that some CNG drivers took to the streets and blocked the road for some time, demanding relief goods.
