ISPAB, COAB postpone countrywide strike

Internet Service Provider Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB) and Cable Operators Association of Bangladesh (COAB) on Saturday postponed their countrywide three-hour strike which was supposed to start from Sunday, reports BSS.

Two platforms took the decision following a virtual meeting with Posts and Telecommunication Minister Mustafa Jabbar, State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak, and Posts and Telecommunications Division Secretary Afzal Hossain.

Leaders of the two platforms, however, will take decision after meeting which is scheduled to be held tomorrow with the Dhaka South City Corporation.

Earlier, ISPAB announced a countrywide shutdown from October 18, from 10am to 1pm daily, to press home their demands.

ISPAB President Aminul Hakim moderated the press conference where ISPAB General Secretary Emdadul Hoque, COAB President S M Anwar Parvez and leaders of both the organizations were present.
