He said the committee leaders are expecting a big group will join the march on their way towards Dhaka from different districts which will be crossed during the three-day march from November 24-26.
The National Committee announced the March Towards Dhaka programme from a sit-in on August 20 in front of the Central Shaheed Minar.

In the last three months, the committee has been running a campaign urging people to join the programme to raise their voice to cancel the Rampal power plant and protect the Sundarbans.
