The permission of the BNP rally is provided that the speech of the convicted person cannot be publicized
Own Correspondent, Dhaka, 31 July 2023: BNP will hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan instead of Nayapaltan in the capital. The Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has given permission to the group for the rally on the condition that the speech of the convicted person cannot be aired in the rally.
On Monday (July 31), DMP Headquarters Joint Commissioner (Operations) Biplab Kumar Sarkar confirmed this information.
He said, "BNP has been given permission to hold a public meeting at Suhrawardy Udyan. They have been given this permission subject to conditions. Police will take action in case of any incidents like obstruction on the road, vandalism of vehicles or burning of vehicles at the rally. Besides, if any kind of disturbance is caused by the rally, the police will act according to the law. Action will be taken. Besides, the speech of any convicted person cannot be aired in the BNP rally," he said.
Earlier, while talking to reporters at the Rajarbagh Central Police Hospital on Saturday evening, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said, "It has been seen that the speech of the current acting chairman of BNP has been broadcast in defiance of the ban of the High Court from the BNP rally."
Meanwhile, in a public meeting at Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital on Monday afternoon, BNP Standing Committee member Mirza Abbas said, "People have taken an oath that no one will go home until this government falls."
He said, "They are making arrests, we are not afraid, BNP is not a party of cowards. Today, leaders and activists are being arrested when they go to the market, they are arrested when they go to pray in the mosque. No tyrannical ruler could survive. Neither can you."
The BNP leader said, "Activists and activists are sick in jail today. More arrests are being made. Where will they be kept? No matter how much torture is done, the movement will continue. The people have taken an oath that no one will go home until the fall of this government."
Abbas said, "I have done a lot of agitations in the last 15 years. A lot of blood spilled. We are agitating for the demands of the masses. The government lost its mind after seeing the rally on 28th. We did not say that we will besiege Dhaka, we said that we will do a peaceful stay program at the entrance. But what did the government do! A hellish attack was carried out by the police force and terrorists."
