If BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia attends the party's December 10 rally in Dhaka, court will take necessary steps, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said on Wednesday. "Khaleda Zia is out of jail on condition, and if she joins the public rally, the court will take steps," the Minister said while speaking at an annual training programme of Bangladesh Police Women Network in Dhaka's Rajarbagh area.
