Khaleda to address 20-party rally in Gazipur Dec 27
Staff Reporter BNP chairperson Khaleda will go to Gazipur on December 27 to address a rally of her 20-party alliance in the district. The local unit of the 20-party will organize the rally at Bhawal Badre Alam Government College ground, BNP chairperson’s adviser Gazipur City Mayor MA Mannan told. Mannan said they have recently held a meting at BNP standing committee member Hannan Shah’s residence in Dhaka and finalized the rally schedule. The rally will be arranged protesting the ‘growing’ incidents of killing, enforced disappearance, abduction and the current ‘illegal’ government’s repressive acts and misrule, he said. The rally is also meant for drumming up public support in favour of their demand for snap polls under a non-party administration, he added. Mannan said they have already got permission from the college authorities to hold the public meeting. He said Khaleda will give direction to his party men about their upcoming decisive movement from the rally. It will be Khaleda’s 11th rally outside the capital after the January-5 election boycotted by the BNP-led opposition alliance. Earlier, Khaleda went to Rajbari on March 1, Munshiganj on May 28, Joypurhat on June 22, Brahmanbaria on September 23, Jamalpur on September 27, Nilphamari October 23, Natore on November 1, Kishoreganj on November 12, Comilla on November 29, and Narayanganj on December 13 and addressed public rallies there.
