After holding a series of demonstration and protest rallies at different wards in Dhaka City, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has announced holding public meetings at eight divisions of the country to drum up support for the ongoing anti-govt movement.
The party will hold a grand rally in Dhaka city on December 10 after holding public meetings at different metropolitan cities.
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir announced the programmes at a press conference at the BNP Chairperson's political office at Gulshan in the capital on Wednesday afternoon.
The party took the decision at a standing committee meeting on Monday night.
The programmes were announced in protest against price hike of essentials, death of party leaders and workers during the ongoing movement, release of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, and implicating leaders and workers in false cases.
Besides, Fakhrul said the BNP standing committee meeting has decided to accelerate the ongoing movement demanding the resignation of Sheikh Hasina-led 'unelected government' from power, handing over power to a neutral caretaker government and holding the next parliamentary election under that government.
The programmes will start with Chittagong Division on October 8, Mymensingh Division on October 15, Khulna Division on October 22, Rangpur Division October 29, Barishal Division on November 5, Faridpur Division on November 12, Sylhet Division on November 19, Cumilla Division on November 26, Rajshahi Division on December 3 and in Dhaka City on December 10.
