AL calls hartal at Lalpur in Natore tomorrow


Local Awami League has called a dawn- to- dusk hartal at Lalpur here tomorrow to protest the visit of State Minister for Sports Fazlur Rahman Patal.

The minister is scheduled to address a meeting at Lalpur on the day organised by local BNP

The call for the shutdown was announced at a meeting at Gopalpur Tempo Stand in Lalpur yesterday with Lalpur upazila AL president prof Yunus Ali in the chair.

A tense situation has been prevailing in Lalpur since the killing of ex-MP and central AL leader Momtaj Uddin on June 6.

Local Awami League alleged that Patal was behind the killing of Momtaj and declared him an unwanted person in Lalpur.
