Dhaka, January 21: The Bangladesh government on Wednesday announced that people who catch those responsible for violence during strikes and blockades will be rewarded 100,000 taka (about $1,250). Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu made the announcement a day after his ministerial junior Asaduzzaman Khan said citizens who hand these trouble–makers over to police will be rewarded, reported. Khaleda Zia had called the blockade Jan 5 when police barred her from leaving her office to lead anti–government agitations. The BNP–led opposition alliance had boycotted the general elections in Bangladesh in January last year and has been pressing for fresh polls under a neutral government since then. (IANS)
