BNP to hold hunger strike today

UNB

BNP will observe a seven-hour token hunger strike at Mahanagar Natya Mancha in the city today protesting the Supreme Court order upholding its stay on bail granted by the High Court to Khaleda Zia in a murder case filed in Cumilla, reports UNB. Besides, the similar programme will be held in all district towns across the country the same day and same time, said party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi yesterday.

Speaking at a press conference at the party's Nayapaltan central office, he said police and Dhaka South City Corporation authorities gave their party verbal permission to hold the token hunger strike at the Mahanagar Natya Mancha.

"We hope we'll get necessary documents and papers in this regard at the right time," Rizvi added. He said their party standing committee members, pro-BNP intellectuals, civil society members, professionals and leaders and activists of the 20-praty alliance will join the programme.

Besides, the BNP leader said they invited other political leaders to express solidarity with their programme. He said their programme will be held in a peacefully manner.

On July 2, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court upheld its previous order staying the High Court order that had granted bail to Khaleda in a murder case filed over the arson attack in Cumilla on February 3, 2015.
