He said people ventilate their grievances through activities of political parties and their leaders. If normal political activities are obstructed, the people seek other forms of protest which is not very cordial. Our political leaders should take note of this and be sincere about upholding the rights of opposition political leaders. He demanded immediate release of Mahmudur Rahman Manna.
