20-party's nationwide protest Sunday

Update : 04 Apr 2015, 02:04 PM

The BNP-led 20-party alliance has announced to bring out protest processions and stage rallies across the country on Sunday.

The alliance made the announcement, on behalf of the BNP chief Khaleda Zia, through a press statement signed by BNP Joint Secretary General Barkatullah Bulu.

It read: “The BNP-led 20-party alliance will bring out protest processions and stage rallies in every district, upazila, police station, municipality and city corporation on Sunday, protesting the nationwide mass killing of the party leaders and activists and demanding the return of all missing leaders, including party's Joint Secretary General Salahuddin Ahmed.”

“The protest will also be staged demanding national elections under non-partisan caretaker government system.”

In the press note issued on Saturday, the alliance has urged the countrymen to observe the programme peacefully and successfully alongside the ongoing nationwide transport blockade.

However, it did not mention any hartal that the BNP-led alliance had been enforcing since February 1.

Earlier on March 24, the alliance had apparently paused its countrywide hartal programme for March 25 and 26, despite having enforced hartals during weekdays continuously since February 1.

However, the alliance enforced another 24-hour nationwide hartal from 6am Thursday (April 2) to 6am Friday (April 3).
