  • Print

BNP senior leader Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Saturday said they have taken all-out preparations for ensuring a huge gathering at their planned rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on Monday.

Speaking at a press conference at BNP's Nayapaltan central office, he, however, said they're still uncertain whether they will be given permission for the programme or not.

"We still know nothing whether the authorities concerned will give us permission for our Dhaka rally...but we've completed our all the necessary preparations for it," the BNP leader said.

He further said, "We'll hold the rally at the right time if we're given permission. There'll be a huge gathering of people at our rally."

Asked whether they have a plan for holding the rally at any other alternative venue if they are not allowed to stage it at Suhrawardy Udyan, Rizvi said for which reason BNP will not be given permission when Awami League, Jatiya Party and Workers Party had rallies there recently.

The BNP leader said their party has a plan to hold rallies in all divisional cities gradually to have their chairperson released from jail.

He said BNP's Khulna unit is scheduled to hold a rally today while Chittagong unit on March 15 and Rajshahi unit on March 31.

The other divisional units will also fix dates for their rallies through discussions, and inform the media about those later.
