Dhaka South City Corporation Mayor Sayeed Khokon on Tuesday criticised the rickshaw pullers’ demonstration which led to severe traffic congestion on major streets of the capital.

The protests were triggered by a decision to ban rickshaws on three major streets of Dhaka.

Hundreds of vehicles were stranded and thousands of commuters were forced to walk when the protesters blocked key streets in the morning.

“We’ll meet the rickshaw pullers to resolve the issue,” he told reporters after attending a workshop at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel in the city.

“Everyone has the right to protest but not by disrupting the people’s lives. We need to change the language and style of the protest,” he said.
