Countrywide demonstrations Monday: Rizvi

BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Saturday said that BNP will bring out processions across the country on Monday protesting the attack on their peaceful black flag demonstration programme in the city, UNB reports.

The programme was also meant for forcing the government to release its chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail, said the BNP senior leader at a press briefing at Nayapaltan.

He alleged that police attacked the party men and foiled their programme without any provocation in the morning in front of the party's Nayaoaltan central office.

He claimed that party's at least 320 leaders and activists, including several women activists, were injured as police charged baton on them.

Rizvi also said police arrested over 150 party men and followers, including its joint secretary general Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal and central leader Mostafizur Rahman Babul and some women leaders.

Earlier in the day, police foiled BNP's black flag demonstration programme in front of its central office protesting the denial of permission to hold a rally in the city.

BNP on February 22, announced the programme protesting the denial of permission for its planned rally on Thursday demanding the release of party chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail.

BNP earlier sought police permission to organise a public rally on February 22 either at Suhrawardy Udyan or in front of its central office, but the police didn't give permission to the party.

On February 8 last, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia was sent to jail after a special court sentenced her to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
