I believe all business man knows how Hortal effect to their business. So, everybody wants to remove this term from Bangladeshi politics. Don't know how.
Now a day at least rickshaw is available all time in hortal. So employees can come to work place by rickshaw. if it is far away then can change it twice.
And if any one thinks that is very time consuming or risky (?) then he/she might stay in other colleagues house/friend/hotel (employer will pay) near office. That could be also fun time and then join the office at hortal days.
