Pabna Drama Circle, a leading cultural organisation of the region, formed a human chain recently at the district headquarters protesting the demolishing of 'Balon sculpture' from in front of the Zia International Airport. Cultural activists, journalists and people from different walks of life took part in the human chain.
The human chain was formed at Abdul Hamid Road. Several hundred people carrying posters and banners condemned the removal of the 'Baul sculpture' and demanded its re-establishment.

“Bauls are a part of our cultural heritage. Vandalising the sculpture is a threat to our cultural practices,” said Gopal Sanyal.
