The BNP and like-minded opposition parties are set to bring out processions holding black flags in all districts on Friday, demanding the cancellation of the 12th parliament and protesting the growing price hikes of essential commodities.

A similar program will also be held in all metropolitan cities, including Dhaka, on Saturday to press home the same demand and to register their protest against the skyrocketing prices of essential items.

Apart from Ganatantra Mancha, the 12-Party Alliance, Jatiyatabadi Samamona Jote, Gono Odhikar Parishad, LDP, Labour Party, Ganatantrik Bam Oikya, Gonoforum, and People’s Party will also take out black-flag processions separately in different areas of the capital.

BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said their party leaders and activists will bring out a procession at 2pm on Saturday in front of the BNP’s Naya Paltan central office.

“We have informed the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) about this program. Our party’s Vice Chairman Advocate Nitai Roy Chowdhury talked to the DMP authorities about the program,” he said.

He said the DMP authorities expressed a positive attitude towards the program, though they still did not give formal permission.

Rizvi said the leaders and activists of BNP’s Dhaka south and north city units have made all-out preparations to make the black-flag program a success.

This will be the BNP's first street program after the 12th national election held on January 7.
