Launch owners have protested against relocation of the Mawa launch terminal in Munshiganj district to another nearby place. They went on a strike on Wednesday as it was relocated to Mawa Chowrasta area.
The Launch Owners Association brought out a procession on the day, protesting against the decision. Several meetings between the association and the concerned authorities were also held to reach a consensus, but they could not solve the problem.
Babu Lal Dutta, an official of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) at the Mawa launch terminal, told daily sun that they had got an order in this regard.
