Bus communication halted. FILE PHOTONatore Transport Workers’ Union is observing a strike since Thursday (Nov 8), protesting the harassment of a Natore bus driver.
Passengers are suffering greatly as all road communication between Rajshahi and Dhaka and 15 other districts have been suspended since Thursday morning.
“The Rajshahi Transport Workers’ Union has been harassing the Natore bus drivers for quite some time now,” said Akram Hossain, General Secretary of Natore Bus-Minibus Transport Workers’ Union.
“The Rajshahi authorities did not take any steps against it despite our continuous complaints,” he added.
He mentioned that members of Rajshahi Transport Workers’ Union harassed a driver of Desh Travels operated bus on Wednesday was the last straw for them after which the strike was called.
