Opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has sought permission for holding a public rally on 8 November at the capital’s Suhrawardy Udyan, marking the National Revolution and Solidarity Day.
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi told that the party sought the permission from the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP).
The BNP and its like-minded forces observe the National Revolution and Solidarity Day on every 7 November, commemorating the 1975 uprising of the people and soldiers through which the BNP’s founder and late president Ziaur Rahman was freed from military captivity.
The party had also sought such approval last year, but all to no avail.
The party was not allowed to hold a public rally even in front of its Naya Paltan headquarters.
