 As part of its countrywide scheduled programme, BNP leaders and activists are staging their sit-in programme in front of its Nayapaltan central office here on Tuesday protesting the jailing of its chairperson Khaleda Zia in a graft case.

Several hundred of BNP leaders and activists started to gather in front of the office from morning and started their programmes around 11am with the presence of senior leaders.

They chanted different slogans demanding the release of Khaleda Zia immediately. 

Police cordoned off the protesters to fend off any trouble.

Earlier, BNP decided to hold the programme in front of party office as police did not give any written permission for holding programme on the premises of the Institute of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh at Kakrail.

The party leaders and followers will observe the programme till 12 noon.

On Saturday, Rizvi announced a three-day protest programme at a press briefing at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office.

As part of the programmes, the party leaders and followers will also observe a hunger strike from 9am to 5pm on Wednesday across the country.

 They formed a human chain in the city on Monday protesting the jailing of its chairperson Khaleda Zia in a graft case.

On Thursday last, a special court here convicted Khaleda and sentenced her to five years’ imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

Earlier, BNP leaders and activists staged demonstrations on Friday and Statuary protesting Khaleda’s conviction all over the country, including in the capital, amid obstruction by police.
