BNP to hold demo for Khaleda Zia’s release

Dhaka, Jun 19 (Just News): Bangladesh Nationalist Party will hold countrywide demonstration on Thursday for unconditional release of the jailed ailing chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and her proper treatment.

BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi at a news briefing at the party's central office on Tuesday announced that demonstration would be held at metropolitan cities including Dhaka city and district headquarters across the country.

Gazipur city corporation areas would be out of Thursday's demo for mayoral polls, he said.

On June 14, BNP submitted memorandum to deputy commissioners in all districts across the country for Khaleda's release before Eid-ul-Fitr and her better treatment.

Khaleda Zia was sentenced to five years in jail in a case on February 8 by a Dhaka special judge's court and was sent to old Dhaka Central Jail.
