SIRAJGANJ: The milk suppliers of Sirajganj Milk Vita put blockade on the Dhaka-Nagarbari and Dhaka-Borga highways on Wednesday to realize their nine-point demands including increase of milk price and lift of quota system in purchase.

Their agitation stopped traffic movement on the highway and created jam on the both sides, witnesses and police said.

Hundreds of milk suppliers gathered in front of the Baghabari Milk Vita under Shahjadpur upazila and put blockade that also stopped petroleum supply in the  North Bengal from Bagabari depot of three oil companies—Padma, Meghna and Jamuna—till noon.
