The Left Democratic Alliance (LDA) observed a nationwide half-day hartal today to protest the soaring prices of edible oil, other essential commodities and utility services.

The shutdown began at 6am and continued until 12pm.

In the morning, the LDA strike supporters staged a procession at Dhaka University's TSC area and later blocked the roads near Shahbag.

Saiful Haque, coordinator of the LDA, urged people of all walks of life to make the strike successful with their spontaneous support.

On March 11 last, the LDA called a nationwide half-day hartal protesting the increasing prices of utility services and daily commodities such as edible oil, rice, lentil and onion.
