Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said despite a lot of campaign for three months, BNP's rally in Chittagong actually resulted in a flop program.

"Chittagong's traditional wrestling competition ‘Jabbar er Boli Khela’ draws more crowd than the recently held BNP rally in the port city," he said.

The minister came up with the remarks while talking to local journalists on Saturday at Chittagong Circuit House after a meeting with local Awami League leaders and members of parliament.

Awami League will hold mass rallies and marches in every upazila and unions of Chittagong next month and a district rally in the city later, he said adding, then people will see how the district rallies of the Awami League are.

The BNP leaders made a lot of offensive comments in the rally they held in the port city on Wednesday, he alleged.

"In that rally they gathered terrorists from different parts of Chittagong and chalked out a plan to create anarchy across the country including in the port city. In that context we have sit today to review the political situation and discuss our course of action," said Hasan.

They had claimed 1.5 million people will join their mass rally but in reality they couldn't even fill up one third portion of the Polo Ground even after bringing people from Cox's Bazar and Teknaf, he said.

Replying to a journalist's question he said, BNP has been continuing the movement to oust the government for the last 14 years from two months after the formation of the government by the Awami League.

Through this movement they have become more detached from the people of the country as the Awami League has been elected to form government three times amid their movement, he added.
