BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has announced fresh programmes during the month of Ramadan with the aim of preventing the rise in prices of electricity and gas, demanding resignation of the Awami League government and implementing the previously announced 10-point-demand.
He said BNP will continue its protest against raising the prices of almost all products including chicken, eggs, meat, cucumber, sugar, dates, lemons and causing hardship to people at the beginning of Ramadan. We were not supposed to announce political programmes during Ramadan. But, considering the current situation of the country, we are forced to continue the movement. For that reason, we have continued various programmes. We hope that the common people of the country will participate in the programmes.
He said this at an iftar party at a club in the capital on Friday (March 24).
BNP has organized this in honor of lem-ulema and orphans. Maulana Nesarul Haque, convener of the Ulama party, offered a special prayer before the Iftar.
Among the programmes announced by Mirza Fakhrul is a sit-in programme from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm on April 1 in all cities and districts of the country. On April 8, sit-in programmes from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the thana and upazila levels of all districts of the country.
