Rizvi accuses govt of obstructing public transports

BNP on Sunday alleged that the government has stopped public bus services to the capital from different adjacent districts in a planned way to prevent the gathering of people at its Suhrawardy Udyan rally.

BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi came up with the allegation while talking to reporters at the rally venue.

"The government has stopped the mass transport in a planned way so that BNP leaders and activists and common people can't join our rally. They're also obstructing long-distance buses.

Even, train service to the capital is also being disrupted," he said.

The BNP leader said the government will not be able to resist the mass wave of people by creating such obstacles. "We've the information that our leaders and activists are coming to the rally on foot or riding other vehicles."

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia is expected to address the rally as the chief guest. She last addressed a rally at the same venue on January 20, 2014, 15 days after the 10th parliamentary polls.

On November 3, the BNP announced to hold the rally at the Suhrawardy Udyan on November 8, marking what it said the 'civil-military uprising on November 7, 1975'.

Later, the party deferred it to Sunday.

The party on Saturday said the government has given it permission for the rally on 23 conditions.

As per the conditions set by the DMP, the rally will have to be concluded by 5:00pm and the BNP leaders and activists will be allowed to enter the meeting venue two hours before the beginning of the rally.

The other conditions are refraining from showing any cartoon or making any statement hurting religious sentiments, making any provocative statement, carrying out any anti-state, anti-peace activities, creating any obstacle to traffic, using loudspeakers at unapproved places, using rods and sticks with banners and festoons, entering the venue with processions and gathering on footpaths.unb.
