Strike in Bangladesh takes toll on trade and bus service with India

Akhaura, Nov 4 (ANI): Trade between India and its neighbouring Bangladesh is facing the brunt of continuous strikes and unrest in Dhaka as hundreds of passengers are also stuck due to halt in bus services across the border. On Saturday, the bus services resumed after almost a week, but the visitors expressed their anger, as the transportation service to Bangladesh is still very uncertain due to regular strikes in Dhaka. Trade in Tripura and Bangladesh has been badly affected and the business community claims that there is a dip in the number of trucks transporting goods across the border. Normally around 200 trucks loaded with various items from Bangladesh enter Tripura through the Akhaura LCS but at present due to the adverse law and order situation in Bangladesh, the number of vehicles plying is less than 20.
