UNB, Sylhet :

Commuters have been suffering a lot for the past 13 days as the bus workers on the Sylhet-M’singh went on an indefinite strike from August 1 following a conflict between the authorities concerned of the two routes.
Bus movement on the Sylhet-Mymensingh route remains suspended since August 1, causing immense sufferings to the Sylhet, Mymensingh, Netrakona and Kishoreganj-bound passengers.
Some 4-5 buses were operative on Sylhet route and 60-70 buses were operative on Mymensingh route. The Mymensingh Bus Owners Association obstructed the Sylhet Bus owners to move in Sylhet, said Ziaul Kabir Palash, general secretary of Sylhet District bus Owners Association.
As a result, no buses were left from the terminal from August 1.The commuters failed to buy tickets for Mymensingh as they went on the strike without any prior notice.
However, a meeting will be held on Sunday where the two groups of bus owners association will take final decision.
The meeting was scheduled to be held at ‘Madhabpur Highway Inn’.
