The public rally of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, scheduled to be held in Khulna on September 22 has been shifted to September 29.
The rally has been rescheduled as its venue has gone under water, Khaleda’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan said. He also said Khaleda’s Barisal rally scheduled for September 29 has been postponed and the fresh date for the rally will be announced later, reports UNB. As part of its movement strategy, the BNP-led 18-party chalked out a plan to hold rallies in the country’s eight regions, including Khulna and Barisal to increase people’s involvement in its ongoing anti-government campaign and force the government to restore now-abolished caretaker government system to oversee the national election. Earlier on September 8, Khaleda, also the leader of the opposition in parliament, addressed a mammoth rally in Narsingdi, the first out of the eight scheduled rallies. She is going to address two public rallies in Rangpur and Rajshahi on Sunday and Monday respectively. She left her Gulshan residence to the country’s northern region at 3:45pm on Saturday to address the rallies.
