Practice alternative of Hartal for the sake of Economic Development: Chittagong Chamber President

Some opposition alliance and the main opposition party called on 4 consecutive days hartal on 6, 7, 10 & 11 July. Besides 2 Govt. holiday (Friday & Saturday) now makes it 6 days countrywide vacation which will stagnant our economy, investment, trade and commerce, export and import and will makes unstable of our daily lives, is the apprehension of the President of the Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry Mr. Murshed Murad Ibrahim.

In this context, he said hartal is a democratic right of every political party in Bangladesh. But in the name of hartal no one expect any destruction in the normal lives of people. Indicating hartal as a suicide towards the country he said, such programme will hamper the normal export-import activities of the port, increasing the price of raw materials and finally it makes overall unstable industrialization of the country.

The price of the imported goods for the upcoming holy Ramadan will increase which makes inflation in the economy, hence, the people of the country will roughly affected because of being their purchasing power decreased. CCCI President also added that the frequent hartal of the opposition will leads to reject of the foreign import order. As a result Bangladesh will loose it’s International market as well as international competitiveness and result is a bad image in abroad. By giving statistics, Mr. Murshed Murad Ibrahim said that we are giving about Tk. 1,000/- crore loss in every days hartal which is increasing day-by-day. CCCI President said that whenever the Per Capita Income is $875/- and Bangladesh is strongly becoming a middle earning country at that time such anti-development activities acts as a boomerang to the economy and due to the chronic unstable political situation the running of un-interrupted trade and investment activities becomes quite possible.

To ensure the investment oriented environment and for the betterment of the nation and the country he requested the hartal calling party to give alternative programme of hartal and also requested both the Government and the opposition party to be more generous, considerate and mutual understanding.
