BNP to stage countrywide protests today

Update : 13 Dec 2022, 10:06

The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) will stage mass procession and demonstration today (December 13) in major cities including the Dhaka metropolis to protest the killing and arrest of its leaders and activists and police action in their central office.

The programme will be held at 2pm.

The party will also bring out another mass procession across the major cities on 24 December to press home their 10-point demand. 

BNP standing committee member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain expressed his hope that the programmes will be observed simultaneously. 

The BNP ended the last divisional rally by declaring a 10-point charter of demands, including the dissolution of the parliament.

Their 10-point demand include the resignation of the government, dissolution of parliament, including the provision of the caretaker government in the constitution through an amendment, formation of a new Election Commission under the caretaker government,  creating a level-playing field before the election, holding the election using ballot papers, releasing BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and all other political prisoners unconditionally and revoking the Digital Security Act and other repressive laws, ensuring the freedom of expression and assembly and keeping all essential items within the buying capacity of people.
