The Jatiya Oikyafront, where the BNP is a major partner, will hold a public meeting in Dhaka on April 30 to protest against repression on women, including the killing of madrasha student Nushrat Jahan Rafi, in the regime of the new Awami League-led government.

We'll demand immediate action against repression against women, including rape and murders,” announced ASM Abdur Rab, president of Jatiya Smajtantrik Dal (JSD), a partner of the Oikyafront, after a meeting of the steering committee of the alliance.

This will be first public meeting of the alliance after the results of the December 30 parliamentary election.

The JSD chief said the alliance would also tour different districts towns. The programme will start from Noakhali and Rajshahi. "The schedule of the programme will be conveyed later on,” he added. He further said the Jatiya Oikyafront will also hold a citizens' rally in Dhaka during Ramadan.

Briefing reporters, Ganaforum president Dr Kamal Hossain, who presided over the meeting at his Motijheel chamber, announced that they would take to the streets to protest against repression against women and deterioration of the law and order situation across the country.

“I think we have to strengthen our movement. People have to take to the streets actively to protect the rule of law and women's rights,” he said. The top Oikyafront leader also said they reached an agreement to take to the streets actively. "The people want  restoration of civilization and establishment of the rule of law," he added.
