BNP permitted to hold rally on Sunday

Bangladesh Nationalist Party - BNP on Saturday (Sep 29) got permission from the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) to hold their rally in Suhrawardy Udyan on Sunday (Sep 30), local media reports said.

The party got the permission on 22 conditions, according to Shaheed Uddin Chowdhury Annie, publicity affairs secretary of the BNP.

Earlier in the morning, a two-member BNP team went to the DMP headquarters to seek permission for the rally.

The BNP is likely to outline its stance on the upcoming national elections and forging of greater national unity at its rally in the capital. It will place a seven-point demand and a 12-point vision at the rally, they mentioned.

The seven-point demand includes formation of non-partisan election-time government, dissolution of parliament, deployment of the army and no use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) in the polls, and release of arrested BNP men.
