The main opposition party plans to hold rallies across the country on Sep 1

The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Monday chalked out a two-days-long program to celebrate its 41st founding anniversary on September 1.   

The programs include rallies, discussions, hoisting the party flag, and placing wreaths at the grave of party founder Ziaur Rahman. 

The programs were worked out at a joint meeting of the party and its associate bodies at BNP's Nayapaltan office, with its Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in the chair. 

After the meeting, BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced the programs. 

As per the founding anniversary programs, the party flag will be hoisted at its Nayapaltan office and all other offices of BNP across the country at 6am on September 1. 

Besides, BNP leaders and activists will place wreaths and offer prayers at the grave of its founder Ziaur Rahman, at 10 am on the same day. 

Speaking at the program, Mirza Fakhrul said they want to hold rallies across the country, including in the capital, the same day. 

He said they would organize rallies not only to mark BNP's founding anniversary, but also to push for its demand for the 'restoration' of democracy.  

Fakhrul said their party will also arrange a discussion in the city on September 2.  

He said BNP leaders will highlight the issue of ‘unfairly’ keeping their chairperson in jail through the programs of their founding anniversary. 

The BNP spokesperson claimed that, over the past 40 years, their party has played a significant role in establishing rule of law and democracy in the country. 

He also recalled their party's various steps for the socio-economic development of the country. 

On September 1, 1978, Ziaur Rahman formed BNP with a 19-point charter to build a self-reliant Bangladesh.
