NOAKHALI: A human chain was formed in Subarnachar upazila of Noakhali district on Sunday demanding resumption of plying of BRTC buses between Sonapur-Chairmanghat routes.

‘Upazila Nagarik Committee’ formed the human chain at Upazila Muktijoddha Chattar on Sunday morning.

The organisation’s president Atik Ullah Sujan presided over the programme while former deputy director of BTV and social worker Sayedul Huque Bhuiyan, Abdul Bari Babul, Imam Uddin Sumon, Hanif Mahmud, Kajal, Ibrahim Khalil Shimul spoke at the programme, among others. It was conducted by Litan Chandra Das.

The speakers said that the distance from Sonapur to Chairmanghat is about 60km. Noakhali deputy commissioner officially inaugurated the BRTC double-decker bus services on Tuesday (June 26) as there was no standard transport.

But just a day after the inauguration, the bus service was shut down on Wednesday due to interference by the local Sonapur Bus-Minibus Owners Association.

They further said all irregularities must be stopped and the BRTC buses inaugurated by the district administration must continue to ply.
