Opposition political party BNP on Friday urged the government to allow it to hold its planned rally at least in front of its Naya Paltan headquarters on Saturday as a venue alternative to Suhrawardy Udyan.
“We’ve sought Suhrawardy Udyan venue for our rally. We’re still saying, we’ll be able to make a successful programme at Suhrawardy Udyan tomorrow (Saturday), if you give us permission by this evening,” said Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
He further said, “We’re also saying if you give us permission to hold the rally in front of our party office (Naya Paltan), we’ll be able to make it a success as well. We’re providing two proposals.”
Fakhrul came up with the remarks while speaking at a preparatory meeting of Dhaka city unit BNP at its office at Bhasani Bhaban. The meeting was held to take necessary preparation to make Saturday’s rally a success.
