Rickshaw-pullers block city roads for 2nd day

Rickshaw-pullers on Tuesday morning blocked different city roads, including Rampura, Badda, Malibagh, for the second consecutive day protesting rickshaw ban on three major roads in Dhaka.

They took to the streets around 8am and staged demonstration blocking the roads.

Rickshaw puller one Monir Hossain said “Our road blockade movement will continue till 1pm. We will continue our movement tomorrow if the ban is not lifted by today.”

Earlier, the authority banned rickshaws on three key roads in Dhaka–Gabtali to Azimpur via Asad Gate, Science Lab Crossing to Shahbagh via Bata intersection and Kuril to Syedabad Bus Terminal through Badda, Rampura and Khilgaon.

Following the decision, rickshaw-pullers blocked some city roads on Monday.
