An indefinite transport strike enforced in the district by transport owners and workers demanding a ban on the plying of human haulers on highways was called off on Tuesday following a fruitful meeting with the administration.


Panchagarh Motor Owners’ Union and three transport workers’ associations were assured at the meeting that the final decision about their demand will be taken on December 15.


Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Salauddin presided over the meeting. Police super Gias Uddin Ahmed and Panchagarh Motor Owners’ Union president Iqbal Kaiser Mintu and its general secretary Apel Mahmud were present at the meeting.


After the meeting, Iqbal Kaiser Mintu said they have decided to withdraw the strike following the assurance of the administration.


On Sunday, the transport and owners and workers enforced the nonstop strike as the local administration failed to stop the plying of human haulers like Nasimon, Karimon and battery-driven easy-bike on the busy roads and highways.
