Mostafizur Rahman Nasim, General Secretary of Bhomra Land Port C&F Agents Association said, “In a letter to us Joydev Sarkar, General Secretary of Ghojadanga C&F Agent Cargo Welfare Association informed that they have decided to suspend import-export for five days as they have three days of Indian public holiday for Durga Puja and Sunday is their weekly holiday whereas, Friday is ours”.
