Leftist parties lead protests over hike in power price


PV Desk : The Progressive Student Alliance has occupied the Shahbagh intersection to support the half-day strike called by leftist parties to protest the government’s decision to raise the price of electricity.

The Communist Party of Bangladesh, Socialist Party of Bangladesh and the Ganatantrik Bam Morcha have been holding protest marches at various locations, including the Paltan, Press Club, Gulistan and Dainik Bangla intersections, as part of their general strike to demand the retraction of the ‘anti-people’ price hike.
