Security has been beefed up in front of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s Gulshan residence in the capital this morning.
Additional two platoons of police were deployed with the existing one in front of Khaleda’s residence around 8:00am, Rafiqul Islam, officer-in-charge of Gulshan Police Station, told The Daily Star.
The extra deployment came on 'security ground', Bangla daily Prothom Alo reports quoting police.
Meanwhile, the vehicular movement on Road No. 79 in Gulshan came to a halt as police remain in front of the BNP chief's house keeping barricade since the noon.
Police personnel also remain on guard in the adjoining areas of Khaleda's house including the Pakistan High Commission.
The initiative was taken when the BNP-led 18-party opposition combine-enforced 83-hour countrywide blockade ended at 5:00pm yesterday.
After wrapping up the agitation programme, Khaleda during a press briefing in the evening urged country people from every corner to march towards the capital on Sunday (December 29) to force the government to postpone the January 5 parliamentary election.
She asked people to say 'yes' to democracy, 'no' to one-sided polls through this December 29 programme.
