The BNP called dawn to dusk shutdown is moving in a relaxed way; hardly any party supporter was seen on the road in support of the strike.
The law enforcers are also absent while everything is moving in normal fashion. There are cars on the street and people are going to offices.
Public transport is moving freely while Morsheda Begum, an advocate of the Dhaka Judge Court, said: “The polls ended yesterday, everyone is tired and no one has time to come out on the road now.”
Traffic Sub-Inspector (TSI) Iftekhar Ahmed said: “Cars are moving in the normal fashion and so far, we have not heard of any untoward incident.”
Rejecting the result of the Dhaka City Corporation election, the party’s Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir declared shutdown on behalf on Sunday (Feb 2).
