Khaleda to address a reception in London Sunday


BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is expected to address a reception being organised in her honour in London on Sunday, according to sources in London.
The programme, organised by UK unit of BNP, will be held at an auditorium in central London. BNP senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman is also expected to address the programme, sources said.“This will be a civic reception in honour of party chairperson Khaleda Zia. Party leaders from different countries including UK, EU, USA, Canada, Australia, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia will also take part in the programme,” said UK BNP president MA Malique.
Talking to journalists over telephone, he said they wanted to organise the programme at London Hilton at Park Lane for accommodation of larger number of audience but they cannot do it as the Bangladesh High Commisisoner allegedly opposed selection of the venue on execuse of possible confrontation between local Awami League and BNP supporters.
Earlier, the UK BNP wanted to hold a rally on October 27 and later the schedule was postponded as the venue was comparatively small and on security grounds. – Staff Reporter
