Amid the nationwide transport strike, a section of leaders of transport workers and owners met Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Saturday but the meeting concluded inconclusively.
“We’ve decided to continue the strike until the decision of the fuel price hike is withdrawn or transport fare is readjusted,” said additional secretary general of Bangladesh Covered Van, Truck Owners Association Abdul Motaleb.
He came up with the remarks while talking to reporters emerging from a meeting with the home minister at the latter’s residence.
“As we didn’t get any positive decision from the government regarding our demand, we’ll continue our programme. The minister may call us anytime to inform us of the Prime Minister’s decision over the issue,” Motaleb added.
