Afternoon traffic troubles likely with AL rallies

With ruling Awami League’s double rallies marking election anniversary today, fears are on that the traffic of Dhaka city might suffer like yesterday as the programmes kick off in the afternoon.

The ruling party’s Dhaka north and south units have arranged separate programmes for today where leaders and activists from all corners of the city and around will converge.

Yesterday, because of one rally of Bangladesh Chhatra League, student front of Awami League, during its founding anniversary, Dhaka city came to a standstill and the public were stranded on roads for hours.

Dhaka north’s programme will be held at Russel Square. Dhaka south’s programme will be held at Bangabandhu Avenue. Both programmes are scheduled to kick off at 3:00pm.

As supporters and activists are expected to throng the venues early to mark “triumph of democracy” in 2014 parliamentary elections which saw Awami League retain power for a second term, the traffic dilemmas are expected to begin from noon.

The programmes are likely to go on until evening – implying that any troubles these two rallies might cause will persist for the rest of the day and might carry on until the night.

Besides, Awami League and its affiliate bodies will also hold similar programmes today throughout all districts and upazilas across the country to celebrate the day.
