The Nirapad Khaddo Andolon Bangladesh yesterday organised a human chain in front of Narayanganj Press Club, to protest use of formalin, carbide and chemicals in food products.
Some 50 persons from all walks of life attended the human chain held at Chashara in the city.
Farid Ahmed Bondha, convenor of the movement, said currently there is no food free of contamination and people are falling sick day by day by eating these poisonous food items.
“We want to die a natural death,” he said, adding that those handling mobile courts do not have machines to test adulterated food.
He demanded that the authorities immediately launch drives against contaminated food in Narayanganj.
Rafiqul Islam Jibon, joint general secretary of Narayanganj Press Club, said many people are dying from food adulteration.
But the administration is paying no heed to this issue, he said, and requested the authorities to take the matter into consideration.
