BNP permitted to stage token hunger strike today

UNB

BNP yesterday got permission to observe a two-hour toke hunger strike programme in the capital today demanding its Chairperson Khaleda Zia's release from jail and her proper treatment, reports UNB. BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) permitted them to observe the programme on the premise of Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh.

As part of their countrywide programme, he said, they will observe token hunger strike from 10am to 12pm. The BNP leader said their party's all other district and metropolitan city units will also observe the programme today to have their chairperson freed from jail.

On Monday, BNP formed human chains across the country, including in front the Jatiya Press Club in the capital, to press the same demand. BNP Chairperson Khaleda has been in jail since a special court convicted her in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
