BNP to stage countrywide demo Sunday

Having failed to get permission for holding its scheduled rally in the city, BNP on Saturday announced a countrywide demonstration programme for Sunday.

BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced the programme at a press briefing at BNP's Nayapaltan central office.

Rizvi said their demonstration programme is meant for registering their party's protest against the denial of police permission for their today's scheduled rally at Suhrawardy Udyan and attack on their party leaders and activists at different parts of the country during the party's black flag procession programme on January 5 marking the 10th parliamentary election day as 'Democracy Killing Day'.

"They (govt) have once again proved that they have shut all the doors and windows of democracy by not allowing us to hold our rally at Suhrawardy Udyan. I, on behalf of BNP, strongly denounce the government's attitude," said Rizvi.

As part of their protest against the government action, the BNP leader said their leaders and activists will stage demonstrations and bring out protest processions in all metropolitan cities and district towns across the country on Sunday.

Besides, he said, Dhaka city BNP's all thana units will also observe similar programmes on the same day.

Earlier on December 28, BNP sought permission from the authorities concerned to hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on January 7 marking January 5 as 'Democracy Killing Day'.

Huge law enforcers have been deployed in front of BNP's Nayapaltan central office and adjacent areas since morning. They are not allowing BNP leaders and activists to enter their office.unb.
