BNP’s post-demo rally near Press Club Monday if S Uddyan refused


BNP’s Dhaka city unit will hold its rally after its scheduled demonstration programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club on Monday if it is not allowed to stage it at Suhrawardy Udyan. “We’ve sought permission from the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) for holding the rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on Monday,” BNP Dhaka city unit member secretary Abdus Salam told journalists on Sunday. He  said they also asked for permission for staging the rally in front the Jatiya Press Club as an alternative venue if they are not given Suhrawardy Udyan for it. The BNP leader, however, said they want to stage it at Suhrawardy Udyan. Earlier on Saturday, BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir at a press briefing announced countrywide demonstrations to register its protest against the ‘repressive acts’ of the government. Fakhrul told reporters that their demonstrations are meant for registering protest against the “government’s growing repressive acts like killing of opposition leaders and activists, their forced disappearances, filing of false cases against them” and indictment of Khaleda Zia and Tarique Rahman. The demonstrations will also be held in all upazilas, district towns and divisional cities. – UNB
