The procession started from Jamalpur's Sarishabari municipality building this noon and it ended at Shilpakala Academy, which was followed by a human chain.

Several hundred men and women participated in this hour-long programme under the banner of the Sarishabari Nagarik Committee.

Among others, Advocate Shahidul Islam, convener of Sarishabari Nagarik Committee, Abdul Jalil Master, joint convener of the committee, Sams Uddin, president of Pogladigha Union Awami League spoke on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, the speakers warned of tougher movement if the UNO is not removed immediately.

Besides, the speakers demanded immediate arrest and exemplary punishment of the accused who recently attacked the project engineer Masudur Rahman Joni during the inauguration of the Sarishabari Model Mosque and Islamic Cultural Center.

Despite several attempts, UNO Upoma Farisha could not be reached over phone for her comments.

When contacted, Jamalpur Deputy Commissioner Srabosti Ray said, he did not receive any complaint against the UNO during the 9 months of his joining Jamalpur.

Besides, no representative of the Nagarik Committee told him anything in writing or verbally, he added.
