Update : 05 Nov 2022, 14:27

Opposition BNP started its grand rally at the Bangabandhu Udyan in Barishal city around 11am on November 5, defying a transport strike with the recitation from the Holy Quran.

Though the meeting was scheduled to begin at 2 pm, the venue has been filled with party leaders and workers since the morning and the rally started before the scheduled time.

Total 120 loudspeakers were also installed in and around the podium.

Bus, launch, speedboat, three-wheeler movements in Barishal division have come to a halt over the last couple of days, ahead of the BNP rally.

The rally will be the party’s fifth one in a divisional headquarters within a month to protest the recent killings of party activists in multiple police shootings and price hikes of essentials and fuel.

The party has erected a 50ft long stage at the Bangabandhu Udyan. The rally venue and adjacent areas, within a 3km radius, are now jam-packed with party BNP supporters.
