At least 700 Bangladeshi miners of Barapukuria Coal Mining Company Ltd (BCMCL) continued their strike demanding conditional raise.
Management have asked the workers to withdraw the strike. The workers pressing home their seven-point demand, including pay raise if the mine produces more than 75,000 tons a month, have been on indefinite strike since February 5.
The 250 Chinese workers in the mine are not striking.
