Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has got permission to hold its sixth national council at the Institute of Engineers' Bangladesh (IEB) in Dhaka on March 19.

BNP Joint Secretary General Rizvi Ahmed made the disclosure at a press briefing at the party’s Nayapaltan central office on Thursday.

Earlier, the party was not allowed to hold its council at Suhrawardy Udyan and Bashundhara Convention Centre.

The last council of BNP was held on December 8, 2009 where Khandker Delwar Hossain was made the secretary general.

Mirza Fakhrul was made the acting secretary general after his death in 2011.

Party charter stipulates BNP to hold national councils every three years, but the last time the party held a council was in December 2009.
