Kushtia: Transports workers on Sunday called a strike in 10 districts of the Khulna division for November 19 to press home their several demands.
The demands include freeing district truck, tank-lorry and covered van union from the clutches of occupants, stopping corruption and harassment while issuing driving licences as well as extortion on highways.

The transport leaders said they will observe the strike in 10 districts of Khulna division on November 19 if their demands are not met by November 18.
