Poor hartal response in ChittagongNew Age Online
Daylong hartal called by Bangladesh Nationalist Party Chittagong chapter is underway in laxity as there is poor response from the city-dwellers.
There was no report of major incident during the hartal as pro-hartal activists were hardly seen on the road since morning.
Plying of vehicles on the roads was usual and commuters’ movement normal across the port city.
Activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League brought out several anti-hartal processions, parading through important roads and intersections in the morning.
Meanwhile, pickets blocked Chittagong-Khagrachari road at Hathazari upazila in the morning.
Sub-Inspector of Hathazari Police Staion Md. Azad said that hartal supporters tried to interrupt movement of transport in the morning.
They escaped as police rushed to the spot, he added.
In Rangamati, BNP and its co-organisations brought out several processions in the city.
Buses, launches and other transports did not move from here.
BNP declared the strike on Tuesday evening after BNP Lawmaker Salauddin Quader Choudrury was sentenced to death for his involvement in war crimes during Bangladesh’s liberation war 1971.
