The ruling Awami League (AL) has announced a series of programmes, protesting the anarchy and terrorist acts of BNP-Jamaat.
The AL will hold seven rallies at separate places in Dhaka and outside of the capital. AL joint general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif made the announcement after a joint meeting held at the AL President's Dhanmondi political office on Tuesday, BSS reports.
The joint meeting was held with the AL secretariat and the presidents and general secretaries of Dhaka North and South units and its affiliated entities. Calling upon the leaders and activists of AL to actively participate in these programmes, Hanif said BNP wants to divert the country's people into a different direction by making falsehood in the name of democracy. The BNP has been taking ill-programmes to foil the next general elections, he said.
