Govt,  BNP Face off over hartal today (part 1)

30 Nov. another hortal day in bangladesh. This is the 1193th hartal in the history of the small country. BNP, the oposition party calls hartal for the betterment of the general people. But the scenerio is not the same. People thought that there is a hidden cause. It may be the `House Politics’. Bangladesh`s former prime minister and incumbent leader of the opposition Khaleda Zia was evicted from her leasehold Dhaka Cantonment house recently. In an instant action, the opposition BNP called a countrywide dawn-to-dusk hartal just before Eid-ul-Adha.

Miscreants have set nine vehicles on fire in the capital ahead of Tuesday's hartal. Seven handmade bombs also exploded.
