No support for Monday’s hartal: BNP

The main opposition BNP has said it did not extend its support towards Monday’s hartal enforced by the Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami.

Talking to the journalists at party’s Naya Paltan office on Monday, Shamsuzzaman Dudu, an adviser to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, said BNP did not provide any support to Monday’s countrywide shutdown sponsored by Jamaat.

On Sunday, Jamaat, an ally of BNP, declared the dawn-to-dusk shutdown protesting against an order passed by the International Crimes Tribunal 2 which jailed Jamaat leaders Hamidur Rahman Azad and Rafiqul Islam Khan for three months for their derogatory comments regarding the tribunals’ proceedings.

Meanwhile, BNP has vowed to hold a rally in the city on Wednesday despite a government ban on rallies or processions in the country.

Party leader Shamsuzzaman Dudu on Monday said they would organise the rally to press the government realise party’s demands including holding of next national elections under a non-partisan government.

“We [BNP] have already sought permission from police to hold the rally,” said Dudu adding that the party is planning to organise the rally in front of party’s Naya Paltan office around 3pm.

On May 19, the government imposed a ban on all forms of demonstrations, including rallies and processions across the country.
