Referring to the BNP's National Revolution and Solidarity Day rally in front of their Nayapaltan central office, Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon said no one would be able to hold rallies with the permission of the law enforcers.
“Without law enforcement agency’s permission, no one can hold their rally in city corporation areas,” he said on Monday. “If the BNP wants to hold a rally in a city corporation area, they should get proper permission first from the authority.”
When contacted for a comment on the mayor’s remark, BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi told the Dhaka Tribune: “We have taken all necessary preparations for the rally, we are now waiting for our party high command’s instruction.”
