There are many grounds in Dhaka city and adjoining areas of the capital. But they (BNP) want to hold rally at Naya Paltan. What is their intention In fact, the intention of holding the rally at Naya Paltan is to vandalize vehicles, create chaos and public sufferings. For this, they want to hold the rally in front of their office in Naya Paltan. There is a nefarious purpose behind it, he said.

The minister said this to reporters while replying to a query after speaking at an anti-tobacco view exchange meeting organised by Unnayan Samannyo at an auditorium of Biswa Sahitya Kendra in the city. Unnayan Samannyo Chairman and Bangladesh Bank former governor Dr Atiur Rahman was present.

Hasan said the government doesn't want to obstruct any rally. If it (government) wants, they could not hold any rally, he added. But the reality is that BNP had carried out grenade and bombs attacks on many rallies of Awami League and killed many people. On the other hand, a single cocktail did not blast in their (BNP) rally, he added.
