The party has chalked out a 10-day programme to observe “National Revolution and Solidarity Day”, marking the “civil-military uprising” on November 7, 1975.
Rizvi made the announcement at a press briefing at the party's Nayapaltan headquarters yesterday.
BNP sought permission for the same programme at the same venue but it was denied by the DMP last year.
Amid political turmoil, soldiers and civilians on November 7, 1975 jointly freed then chief of army staff Ziaur Rahman from captivity in Dhaka cantonment, paving the path for Zia to come to power.
