BNP to consider if govt suggests suitable venue

05 December 2022

Staff Reporter :
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday said that they would consider if the government proposes an alternative suitable and alternative venue for the party's rally on December 10.
"If we get any suitable alternative venue then we will consider it, but it should not be Suhrawady Udyan or on the Turag bank," Mirza Fakhrul said speaking at an emergency press conference at the party's Nayapaltan central office.
However, the BNP leader accused the government of unnecessarily creating an anarchic and conflicting situation over a peaceful democratic programme.
"BNP's Dhaka rally will be the most successful and peaceful one. So we urge the government not to create any instability by trying to divert our
programme to a different direction," the Secretary General said.
He also warned that the government would be held responsible if any anarchic and conflicting situation was created over the upcoming Dhaka divisional rally.
The BNP leader urged the government to stop arresting the party leaders and activists and release those who were arrested for the sake of creating a convenient and democratic environment.
Replying to a query over an alternative venue of the December 10 rally, Mirza Fakhrul said their party Standing Committee Member Mirza Aabbas on Saturday called upon the government to come up with a suitable alternative proposal for holding the rally instead of Nayapaltan and Suhrawardy Udyan.
BNP Secretary General accused the government of establishing a reign of terror over the rally by issuing threats, filing cases and arresting the party leaders and activists across the country.
Mirza Fakhrul claimed that more than 1,000 BNP leaders and activists had been arrested since November 30 in Dhaka division centering the rally.
"The party leaders and activists now cannot even stay at their homes due to the raids by police in every night and every area," he said.
