Dhaka: BNP on Saturday termed ‘untrue’ the DMP Police Commissioner’s statement that they did not get any application from the party seeking permission for holding a rally on November 8 in front of its Nayapaltan central office.
“We gave an application to the appropriate DMP authorities seeking permission for holding a rally at Nayapaltan. They also received the application. Despite that what the police are now telling the media is not true. They’re lying,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. UNB News Agency Reported.
He came up with the remarks at a press briefing at the party’s Nayapaltan central office.
The BNP leader also showed journalists the received copy of their application.
Having denied permission to hold its rally at Suhrawardy Udyan, Rizvi on Friday said they sought fresh permission to stage it in front of its Nayapaltan central office on November 8 marking the ’National Revolution and Solidarity Day’.
Earlier, BNP sought permission from DMP to allow it holding a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan either on November 7 or 8.
On Thursday night, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) said they would not allow any political party to hold any rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on November 7 or 8 on public security ground as some other parties also sought permission to use the venue at the same time.
Speaking at a programme on Saturday, DMP Commissioner Mohammad Asaduzzaman Miah, however, said they did not get fresh application from BNP for giving it permission to hold its rally at Nayapaltan.
Rizvi also alleged that police arrested their four leaders in front of their party office in the afternoon to frighten the party activists ahead of its November 8 rally.
He said police unlawfully arrested their party assistant office secretary Taiful Islam Tipu, JCD vice president Nazmul Hasan, assistant training affairs secretary Shafiqul Islam and Dhaka University JCD president Sarwarul Alam Khan in front of their party office.
He condemned the police move and demanded the release of the leaders.
