Govt obstructing campaigns for Sept 27 rally: BNP

Edit Date:9/28/2011 12:00:00 AM



The opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party on Sunday alleged that the Awami League-led government kept obstructing BNP-led alliance campaigns for the ‘grand rally’ the party planned to hold in Dhaka on September 27.

The party’s joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi at a briefing said that BNP activists had been barred from any kind of campaigns for the rally.

‘The police and ruling party goons are obstruction BNP activists from whatever they are trying to do for the rally. They are stopped from distributing leaflets, posting bills, set up gates and making announcements on PA systems,’ Rizvi said.

The BNP chairperson, Khaleda Zia, is expected to roll out action programmes of the BNP-led alliance against the government at the rally scheduled to be held in front of the BNP’s central office at Naya Paltan.

The government on September 22 informed the BNP about its rejection of the BNP’s appeal for using Paltan Maidan for the rally.

‘We wanted to hold the rally in Paltan Maidan but the government did not allow us to use the ground. Now it is trying to foil the rally at Naya Paltan too,’ he said.

Rizvi expected that good sense should prevail prevail on the government so that it extends its cooperation in holding the rally.

The party’s joint secretary Salahuddin Ahmed, organising secretary Fazlul Huq Milan, international affairs secretary Nazim Uddin Alam and economic affairs secretary Abdus Salam also attended.
