    মনে আছে, বছরখানেক আগে আমাদের ঢাকা শহরে সিএনজিচালিত অটোরিকশার মালিক ও চালকরা তাদের গাড়ি আর না চালানোর হুমকি দিয়েছিলেন? ২০১৭ সালের ২৭ নভেম্বর থেকে তাদের অটোরিকশা আর রাস্তায় নামাবেন না বলে পূর্ববার্তা দিয়েছিলেন। তার অর্থ হচ্ছে, সাধারণ যাত্রীরা তাদের অফিস বা কর্মস্থলে যেতে এবং কাজ শেষে বাড়ি ফিরতে আর অটোরিকশা…
