BNP to form human chain in city Wednesday

As part of its seven-day scheduled programme, BNP will form a human chain in the city on Wednesday demanding its chairperson Khaleda Zia's release from jail.


Leaders and activists of the party will stage the programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club from 11 am to 12 noon, said BNP assistant organising secretary Abdus Salam Azad.


Party senior leaders, including its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and standing committee members, are expected to address the programme.


Earlier on Sunday, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced the weeklong fresh programme, including the human chain, demanding Khaleda's release from jail.


On February 8, Khaleda Zia was sent to Old Dhaka Central Jail after a special court sentenced her to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.


After the jailing of Khaleda, the party observed different peaceful programmes, including leaflet distribution, countrywide demonstration, human-chain formation, sit-in, token hunger-strike, protest procession in different phases, demanding her release.
