Indefinite strike in Bangladesh

Lalmonirhat District Bus and Minibus Workers Union yesterday started an indefinite strike on Lalmonirhat-Burimari land port route, in protest at the vandalising of a bus and assault of a bus worker at Barokhat bus stand in Hatibandha upazila of Lalmonirhat.
Union sources said the people of Barokhata village vandalised a passenger bus and assaulted a busworker, Kanchon Sarker, following a feud over a bus fare on Tuesday evening. Injured Kanchon was admitted to Hatibandha Upazila Health Complex. The strike will continue until their demand is met, said union leaders.
