BNP on Wednesday paid homage to the 1952 language movement martyrs marking Amar Ekushey, the Language Martyrs Day and the International Mother Language Day.
BNP central leaders, led by its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and standing committee member Khandaker Mosharref Hossain, went to the Central Shaheed Minar around 11:30 am and placed wreaths at its alter.
As BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is in jail, the party leaders didn't go to the Shaheed Minar at night.
Earlier, several hundred BNP leaders and activists gathered in front of Balaka cinema hall and went to Azimpur graveyard at 8am .
They offered fathea and munajat at the graves of language martyrs there seeking salvation of the departed souls.
