Update : 24 Aug 2013, 07:02 PM

The venue of Prime Minister’s public rally at Fatikchhari upazila in Chittagong, has been changed for security reasons to the Roads and Highway Department grounds at Folagazi about two kilometres away from the previous venue.

Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to attend a programme of Bangladesh Navy at Chittagong’s Naval Academy on August 29, while she will also attend as the chief guest, a public rally at Fatikchhari, organised by the upazila Awami League (AL) unit, added the sources.

MA Salam, administrator of Chittagong District Parishad and president of AL (north) unit, told Dhaka Tribune that security forces assessed that security might be compromised as the previous venue is always overcrowded. Therefore, the venue has been changed for security reasons.
