The Bangladesh Ambulance Owners Welfare Association will go on an indefinite nationwide strike from midnight to press home their six-point demands.
The organisation announced the strike in a press release on Sunday night.
The ambulance owners also demanded parking facilities at all hospitals in the country, the ability to fill up at petrol or gas filling stations without queuing when transporting a patient, and uninterrupted travel on roads without harassment.
Mentioning that they have been pushing for these demands since 2017, Golam Mostafa, president of the Bangladesh Ambulance Owners Association, said the strike will continue until their demands are met.
According to BRTA, there are 8,317 registered ambulances nationwide. Of these, around 8,000 are privately owned, Bangladesh Ambulance Owners Welfare Association sources said.
