‘Don’t enforce strike by holding people hostage’

BSS, Dhaka
‘Don’t enforce strike by 
holding people hostage’

Awami League (AL) Presidium Member and central 14-party alliance spokesman Mohammed Nasim yesterday urged the transport owners and workers not to enforce strike on roads by holding the country’s people hostage. “We need to bring discipline on our roads.

I urge the countrymen to comply with the new road transport act. And I am requesting the transport owners and workers not to hold the people hostage by calling strike.” he said. Nasim made the call at a press conference following a meeting of the 14-party alliances at the central office of Awami League in city’s Bangabandhu Avenue. He said if the transport owners as well as workers want to talk about the road transport act then they can sit at the table to resolve the problem, adding: “We do not support strikes.” Commenting on the conspiracy over the increase in the price of rice after onion, Nasim said there is an evil force which is doing politics capitalising on the hunger of the people. Everyone knows about this evil force, he added.

About BNP-Jamaat, he said they always hatch conspiracy against the Awami League government. He urged the concerned ministries, including the ministries of commerce, agriculture and food to stay alert so that the conspirators could not raise the prices of essential goods in future.

After the onion price hike, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina made announcement of importing onion from abroad and subsequently, it was seen that the price of onion started to go down, he said.

“In many places, rotten onion was dumped into the river. It is clear that a vested quarter is hatching conspiracy over the price hike of onion,” he added.

With Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JASAD) President Hasanul Haque Inu in the chair, the meeting was attended, among others, by AL central leaders Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya (Bir Bikram) and Advocate Quamrul Islam, Tarikat Federation Chairman Syed Nazibul Bashar Maizbhandari, MP, Workers’ Party leader Sharif Nurul Ambia, Ganatantri Party General Secretary Dr Shahadat Hossain, AL Dhaka South City Unit General Secretary Shahe Alam Murad and its Joint General Secretary Dilip Roy.
