The prime minister returned to the country after an 11-day US visit. Her flight landed at the Shahjalal International Airport after 1pm.

The Awami League organised a reception for her as she has received the UN environment prize and the ITU award.

Hundreds of leaders and activists gathered on both sides of the street from airport to her official residence Ganabhaban to greet her.



The huge gathering on one of the key roads caused major traffic disruption on the streets around it.

Auto-rickshaw driver Mizanur Rahman was found stranded at the airport. “I have been stuck for over half an hour.”

The street connecting Gulshan-1 intersection and Mohakhali was packed with vehicles as police did not allow any vehicles to enter the road since 1am. The prime minister’s convoy passed the area around 2pm.

Sayed Hossain, who works for a private organisation, was found at the bus stop at Farmgate. He said he had been waiting for almost an hour for a bus.

Traffic has been rather thin in Dhaka since the Eid-ul-Azha, but residents had to experience congestion on the weekend due to the huge presence of ruoling party supporters on the streets.

Law enforcers adopted additional measures to ensure security, said Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) spokesperson Muntasirul Islam.

Additional RAB patrols were deployed in the area, said its spokesperson Mufti Mahmud Khan
