An organisation of transport workers has called a 48-hour strike in Chattogram, accusing the ruling party's MP Didarul Alam of beating two of their leaders.
The regional wing of the Road Transport Workers Federation announced the strike on Monday and Tuesday at a press briefing on Sunday.
Didarul Alam, MP from Chattagram-4 seat (Sitakunda) denied the accusation, saying he was involved in an altercation but there had been no fight.
Federation Regional Committee President Mohammad Musa said that the leaders of the route no. 8 Human Hauler Owner Association and federation General Secretary Oli Ahmed were called to the residence of Didarul Alam in Kattali on Thursday. "MP Didarul Alam asked worker leader Oli Ahmed and joint secretary of the owners association Khorshed Alam to hand over control of the association and the operation of route no. 8 to him in writing or else to pay him Tk 200,000 per month."    -bdnews24.com
