Transport workers have halted bus transportation services on all routes in Narail for an indefinite period, demanding reformation of the newly enacted Road Transportation Act 2018.

Drivers have suspended their services on Monday morning after parking their vehicles at various bus terminals causing immense suffering to thousands of commuters.

The ‘transport strike’ started a day after Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader declared the enforcement of the new Road Transport Act 2018.

Earlier on Sunday, Quader urged the transport owners and workers to follow the law.

Transport workers on some 18 routes in Jashore also declared suspension of bus services for indefinite period demanding amendment of act on Sunday.

Although, the act was scheduled to come into effect on November 1, the government halted its full execution, saying that transport workers, including people, lacked awareness about the tough law.
