Several hundred of Ready-made Garment (RMG) workers have blocked the Dhaka-Mymensingh Highway in Gazipur's Hotapara causing heavy traffic congestion in the area.

 

The agitated workers of Elegance Garments took position on the highway around 10 am on Friday, demanding half salaries for the month of August before the Eid-ul-Azha vacation.

 

Due to the demonstration, hundreds of vehicles carrying the Eid-ul-Azha holidaymakers remained stranded on both sides of the road due to the blockade.

 

It is reported that police were trying to arrange a negotiation meeting between the factory owners and the workers to bring back normalcy on the road.
