Transport workers on Friday decided to suspend movement of all buses from and towards Khulna city for 24 hours from Friday evening.
They took the decision to ensure their safety during a rally declared by six defeated city corporation election mayoral candidates nominated by Bangladesh Nationalist Party which is scheduled for Saturday, Bangladesh Road Transport Workers Federation general secretary Osman Ali told New Age.
As per the decision no buses from Khulna city would leave from Friday 6:00pm to Saturday 6:00pm, said other leaders.
No buses would be allowed to enter the city either, they added.
Meanwhile the BNP is scheduled to hold the rally at its party office on Saturday noon.
