Vehicular movement between southern and northern districts through the highways of Pabna came to a halt since Thursday morning

An indefinite strike, called by Pabna district Bus Malik-Sramik Oikya Parishad, began in the district on Thursday morning protesting the assault on one of their fellows, causing suffering to commuters.

The Oikya Parishad leader Habibur Rahman said the transport owners and workers of Shahjadpur in Sirajganj frequently physically assault the transport workers of Pabna over trivial matters when the buses of Pabna cross Shahjadpur Highway to reach Dhaka.

“They had beat up two workers of Pabna Express on December 24, but the authorities concerned did not take any action regarding the matter,” he said.

The Bus Malik-Sramik Oikya Parishad called the strike with a six-point demand that halted the movement of all kinds of public transports including truck and CNG-run autorickshaws, said sources.

The Oikya Parishad sought a permanent solution to the problem and gave a three-day ultimatum on December 27, but no measures were taken, Habibur Rahman also said.

The strike will continue until the demands are met, he further said.
