Dhaka Metropolitan Police today allowed BNP to hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan in Dhaka tomorrow marking the National Revolution and Solidarity Day but there are 23 conditions.
“BNP leader Shahid Uddin Chowdhury Annie received the permission letter from DMP,” the party’s Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said at a press conference at its Nayapaltan office today.
Chairperson of the party Khaleda Zia, also a former prime minister, is expected to address the rally which is scheduled to start at 2:00pm.
Earlier, BNP sought permission for holding the rally at Suhrawardy Udyan tomorrow marking the National Revolution and Solidarity Day. The party plans to stage a huge showdown by organising it.
The party is going to organise such a big programme in Dhaka after around two years.
Earlier on January 5 last year, BNP held a programme in front of its Nayapaltan headquarters in Dhaka to mark January 5, which the party termed “democracy killing day”.
That time BNP wanted to hold the programme on Suhrawardy Udayan but did it get permission.
