The Awami League led 14-party opposition combine enforces a dawn-to-dusk countrywide hartal on Tuesday protesting the death of an opposition activist in police action during the blockade programme on Sunday.
Leader of the Opposition and AL President Sheikh Hasina announced the shutdown at a press conference on July 2 after the six-hour blockade of road, rail and waterways. Ambulances, newspaper vehicles, drug stores, garbage trucks, and other vehicles on emergency duty will remain outside the purview of the 6:00am-6: 00pm shutdown.
Meanwhile on Monday , several hundred opposition activists paraded the city streets to grieve the death of Golam Mustafa Milon. The mourning procession, which was brought after a gayebana janaza for Milon on Bangabandhu Avenue before Johar prayers, ended at the central Shaheed Minar.
