Refrain from provocation: BNP to AL
Political opposition BNP today urged the ruling quarter to refrain from any provocation and show political maturity ahead of their November 12 rally in Dhaka.
“We expect all out cooperation and political behavior from the government,” the party’s standing committee member Mirza Abbas said in regard to the rally.
“We also hope that the government would refrain from any kinds of provocative activities,” he said while visiting the rally venue Suhrawardy Udyan this afternoon.
BNP is set to hold the November 12 rally marking the “National Revolution and Solidarity Day”, where the party’s Chairperson Khaleda Zia will attend as chief guest.
Senior leaders of the party, including Vice Chairman Abdullah Al Noman, Senior Joint Secretary General Rizvi Ahmed and Joint Secretary General Habibunnabi Khan Sohel accompanied Abbas during the site visit.
“We are smelling hints of provocation in remarks made by Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader over the rally,” said Abbas.
He was referring to Quaders remarks that despite permission, the government will take action against “any unprecedented and unwanted incident in the rally”.
