Hartal in Companiganj called off on request of Obaidul Quader

The civil society platform titled ‘Nagorik Samaj’ has called off their Sunday’s eight hours (8:00am to 2:00pm) hartal in Noakhali's Companiganj upazila.

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader requested the leaders of the platform to cancel their programme considering public sufferings.

The strike was called protesting against ‘derogatory’ remarks on Obaidul Quader's family.

The protesters also demanded for the repeal of the district Awami League committee and the expulsion of Ekramul Karim Chowdhury, the MP of Noakhali-4 constituency (Sadar and Subarnachar).

Abdul Quader Mirza, the younger brother of Obaidul Quader and newly elected mayor of Basurhat municipality, announced the hartal programme at Basurhat Bangabandhu Chattar in Companiganj on Saturday morning.
