The ruling Awami League will hold a grand rally in the capital's Suhrawardy Udyan on January 19 to celebrate the party's landslide victory in the December 30 polls.

The programme will start at 2:30pm and AL President Sheikh Hasina will be the chief guest, said a press release.

AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader called upon all leaders and activists of the party to attend the rally to make it a success.

Besides, Quader will hold a joint meeting with the general secretaries of the AL's different fronts and associate bodies at the party's central office on the Bangabandhu Avenue this morning.
