Gaibandha people suffer due to transport strike
Consequently, no vehicles could enter or exit the district from 5am on Tuesday, creating immense suffering for commuters, especially patients in transit. Gaibandha Zilla Sarak Paribahan Malik-Sramik Oikya Parishad called the strike through a press conference at the district press club on Sunday, followed by loudspeaker announcements the next day. The organisation's Convener Kazi Makbul Hossain said they had protested as Gobindaganj Motor Owners' Samity started illegally operating their vehicles on the Sundarganj, Belka and Panchpir Feeder roads. On the contrary, on Friday, Gobindaganj Samity halted the movement of vehicles passing the upazila town and the matter was explained to both district and police administrations, he added. He alleged that despite their repeated calls, the authorities did not take any measures to deal with the unexpected situation. Gobindaganj upazila part of the Rangpur-Dhaka highway is the only route to access the district. When contacted, Gobindaganj transport organisation President Shafiqul Islam said: “Earlier the district motor owners' samity had stopped our vehicles on the routes. We have been intercepting their vehicles due to not finding any solutions despite our calls to the district administration. Gaibandha Deputy Commissioner Md Abdus Samad said: “We have sat for three times with both sides over the issue. But our efforts ended in vain as they were adamant in their points.”
