Leaders and activists of BNP and its associate bodies will stage demonstrations across the country on Tuesday demanding the release of its chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail.
The party also rescheduled its today’s planned rally at Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital for March 29 as the Dhaka Metropolitan police authorities did not respond to its application seeking permission for the programme.
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir came up with the announcement at a press conference at party’s Nayapaltan central office on Monday.
He said their party’s all district and metropolitan city units will demonstrate tomorrow (Tuesday) seeking their chairperson Khaleda Zia’s release from jail, reports UNB.
In the capital, Fakhrul said the similar programme will also be observed at every thana here on the same ground.
He said though they had a schedule to hold rally at Suhrawardy Udyan today, the DMP authorities did not give them permission to hold it.
The BNP leader hoped that the authorities concerned will allow them to hold the rally on March 29.
Earlier on March 12, BNP announced to hold the rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on March 19, having failed to get permission to hold the similar programme on that day.
On March 2, BNP first announced to hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on March 12, demanding the release of its chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia from jail.
The DMP authorities, however, informed BNP on March 11 that they could not permit the party to hold its rally on security grounds.
