BNP denied permission to hold 5 Jan rally

BNPDenying the BNP's permission to hold its scheduled rally in the city, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) on Thursday advised the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) to arrange an indoor programme instead of going for outdoor one on Friday, reports UNB.

Talking to UNB after a meeting with the DMP authorities, BNP publicity affairs secretary Shaheed Uddin Chowdhury Anee made the disclosure.

He said they had a long discussion with the DMP authorities over their Friday's programme.

"The DMP authorities said they can't allow us to hold the rally at Suhrawardy Udyan as an Islamic party was earlier given permission to use the venue. They also urged us not to hold any programme at Naya Paltan on the road halting traffic," Anee said.

He further said, "They've given us some alternative proposals like holding an indoor programme tomorrow (Friday). They've also told us that they'll allow us to hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan at the end of January."

The BNP leader said their party high command will now decide through discussions about Friday's programme to mark what they said Democracy Killing Day.

BNP chairperson's advisers Abdus Salam, Abul Khaier Bhuiyan and Anee went to the DMP commissioner's office around 3pm and had about an hour-long discussion on the party's scheduled programme.

On Monday, the BNP announced to hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan in the city and bring out black flag processions across the country on 5 January to observe the day as 'Democracy Killing Day' to register its protest against 10th parliamentary polls held on that day in 2014.

However, the party sought a fresh permission from the police and South City Corporation authorities on Wednesday for holding the programme at Naya Paltan as an Islamic party was allowed to hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan the same day.
