Landless people besiege Pirganj UNO office
Members of about 50 landless families, living on the bank of Tungipukur at Hazipur village under Pirganj upazila, besieged the UNO office yesterday afternoon, demanding allocation of khas land.
They also submitted a memorandum to upazila nirbahi officer Abdur Rauf Mandal in favour of their demands.
The programmes followed a discussion where Workers' Party leader Faizul Islam, freedom fighter Abul Hossain and landless people's leader Kalachand Roy spoke.
They said more families were becoming landless every day due to the land grabbers and land greedy influential people.
During the last one year, several attacks were launched on people in a bid to evict them from their land showing fake documents, they said.
