Senior Reporter: BNP will stage demonstrations across the country Thursday demanding release of party chairperson Khaleda Zia and her proper treatment.
BNP Senior Joint Secretary-General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced the programme at a press briefing at the party's Naya Paltan central office on Tuesday.
He said the party's all district and metropolitan city units will demonstrate on Thursday.
Rizvi, however, said Gazipur city corporation area will remain out of purview of the demonstration programme.
Rizvi alleged that the ministers are making unguarded remarks about Khaleda's treatment only to confuse people and obstruct her from receiving treatment at a specialised hospital.
He renewed the BNP’s demand for allowing the former prime minister to receive treatment at United Hospital in the capital after releasing her from jail.
