The Dhaka regional committee of Bangladesh Sarak Paribahan Sramik Federation yesterday called a transport strike for December 11 and 12 to press home its seven-point demand including an end to harassment by police on the highways.
The strike will be enforced on Dhaka to Gazipur, Mymensingh, Netrakona, Kishoreganj and Tangail routes, Osman Ali Khan, general secretary of the workers' federation, told The Daily Star.
The demands include taking steps to stop extortion and harassment by police, freeing the office of district transport workers' union and owners' association (Kaliakoir branch) from occupants and lowering prices of all types of fuel including CNG.
To drum up support for the strike, the transport workers yesterday brought out protest processions on Dhaka-Tangail and Dhaka-Mymensingh highways, reports UNB.
Later, the federation leaders at a meeting held on Dhaka-Mymensingh highway threatened that the 48-hour strike would be observed in all routes in Dhaka division if the demands were not met before December 10.
