Khaleda leaves for Jessore; to address rally in Khulna Sunday


BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia left for Jessore on Saturday afternoon and will address a public rally in Khulna on Sunday, aiming to mobilise public support in favour of the opposition’s demand for arranging the next polls under a non-party administration.   The BNP chairperson started her journey for Jessore from her Gulshan residence around 4:40pm.   She is scheduled to stay overnight at Jessore Circuit House on Saturday and start for Khulna on Sunday noon.   As part of its movement strategy, the BNP-led 18-party alliance is going to arrange the rally at Khulna Circuit House ground on Sunday afternoon.   This will be the fourth out of eight 18-party rallies to be arranged in eight regions of the country to increase people’s involvement in their
ongoing anti-government campaign to force the government to restore now-abolished caretaker government system to oversee the polls.
Earlier, the BNP chief addressed rallies in Narsingdi on September 8 while Rangpur on September 15 and Rajshahi on September 16.   After Khulna, Khaleda, also the leader of the opposition in parliament, will address a rally in Sylhet on October 5.   Earlier, the Khulna rally was scheduled to be held on September 22.   The rally was rescheduled for September 29 due to bad condition of its venue, the Khulna Circuit House ground.   Khaleda’s Barisal rally scheduled for September 29 was postponed and the fresh date for it will be announced later.   She will also address rallies in Dhaka and Chittagong after Eid-ul-Azha,
the second largest religious festival of Muslims. – UNB
