BNP is set to stage a 'showdown' through its rally at Suhrawardy Udyan in the city on Sunday from where its Chairperson Khaleda Zia will send out an important message to party rank and file about the next polls and the party's 'ongoing movement for restoration' of people's democratic rights.

The party senior leader have already held a series of meetings with its different units, front and associated bodies and leaders of different districts adjacent to the capital for ensuring the 'huge presence' of party leaders and activists and thus demonstrate its 'popularity'.

"We've taken all-out preparations to make our rally a success. Observing the National Revolution and Solidarity Day is not our main goal.

We think it's important that our leader Khaleda Zia will give a message to consolidate our ongoing movement for the restoration people's democratic rights," said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

Speaking at a press conference at BNP's Nayapaltan central office, he further said, "Our chairperson will give the nation a very important message from the rally."

Under the current political circumstances, the BNP leader said the rally has immense significance.

Referring to Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader's comment that police have to think many things before giving BNP permission for a rally as it often creates chaos due to intra-party conflicts, Fakhrul said, "It's totally a false remark. No disorder was created in the past in BNP's such a rally."

"I call upon the Awami League general secretary to take steps for creating a democratic atmosphere refraining from giving false and baseless information. Make positive comments. You please don't disrupt the democratic process with your negative and provocative comments."

Fakhrul said their public rally will reflect people's hopes and aspirations through the gathering of huge people.

BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia will address the rally as the chief guest.

She last addressed a rally at the same venue nearly four years back on January 20, 2014, 15 days after the 10th parliamentary polls, while a public rally at Nayapaltan on January 5, 2016.

On Friday last, BNP announced to hold the rally at the Suhrawardy Udyan on Wednesday marking what it said the civil-military 'uprising on November 7, 1975'.

Later, the party deferred it to Sunday for various reasons.

Talking to UNB, BNP vice chairman Abdullah Al Noman said their party leaders and activists are already invigorated after their chairperson's Cox's Bazar tour as she got overwhelming response from people. "We once again will show our popularity through the Suhrawardy Udyan rally."

He said they have taken necessary preparations to hold the rally peacefully. "We hope the rally will turn into a human sea with the spontaneous participation of people of all walks of life Noman said their chairperson will deliver a comprehensive speech on the country's current situation, next polls and other important issues.unb.
