BNP looking to heat up political landscape from November


The political landscape may heat up extremely early next month as BNP and other opposition parties are set to start the final phase of the movement with harsher programmers to topple the government amid the ruling party’s warning of dire consequences.

Talking to UNB, several senior BNP leaders said their party may hold a public rally in Dhaka either on October 28 from where they are likely to announce tougher programmes like marching towards important government offices or laying siege to these offices in the capital, observing sits in front of the secretariat or the Election Commission and blocking the entrances of Dhaka.

They, however, said the programmes will be finalised at the BNP standing committee’s meeting on September 23.

The BNP leader said the main goal of their programmes is to prevent the announcement of the schedule for the next election and force the government to quit handing over power to an interim neutral government.


Meanwhile, BNP will hold a public rally in the capital on Wednesday to press home their one-point demand that includes the resignation of the government and the unconditional release of Khaleda Zia for her treatment abroad.

From the rally, party Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir will announce to hold a grand rally in Dhaka on October 28.

He is also supposed to give the government the last warning to accept their one-point movement to avoid fierce agitation.
