BNP will submit memorandums to all the Deputy Commissioner (DC) offices across the country on Wednesday (November 24), demanding that its Chairperson Khaleda Zia be allowed to go abroad for advanced medical treatment.
Party Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir announced the programme at a rally in front of the Jatiya Press Club today.
Fakhrul warned that they will hold further protests if their demand is not met by the time. “We don’t have any other alternative,” he said.
As part of their countrywide programme, Dhaka south and north city units of BNP arranged the rally to mount pressure on the government to let Khaleda go to any advanced centre overseas for treatment.
On Saturday, the party leaders and activists observed a seven-hour mass-hunger strike across the country, including the capital, to realise the same demand.
