Apparently softening its position on holding rally at Nayapaltan, Bangladesh Nationalist Party on Sunday said that they would consider if the government came up with any suitable and alternative venue for the party’s rally on December 10.

However, the party accused the government of unnecessarily creating an anarchic and conflicting situation over a peaceful democratic programme.

‘Our Dhaka rally will be the most successful and peaceful one. So we urge the government not to create any instability by trying to divert our programme to a different direction,’ said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

Speaking at an emergency press conference at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office, he also warned that the government would be held responsible if any anarchic and conflicting situation was created over the rally.

He once again urged the government to stop arresting BNP leaders and activists and release those who were arrested for creating a convenient and democratic environment.

Replying to a question , Fakhrul said their party standing committee member Mirza Aabbas on Saturday called upon the government t to come up with an alternative proposal for holding the rally instead of Nayapaltan and Suhrawardy Udyan.

‘If we get any suitable alternative venue then we will consider it, but it should not be Suhrawady Udyan or on the Turag bank,’ he added.

Fakhrul alleged that the government had established a reign of terror over the rally by issuing threats, filing cases and arresting BNP leaders and activists.

He claimed that over 1,000 BNP leaders and activists had been arrested since November 30 in Dhaka division centering the rally.

‘Our leaders now can’t even stay at their homes due to the raids by police.’
