Khaleda to give ‘important speech’, says Fakhrul


PV Desk : BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia will deliver her first major speech in Dhaka in nearly a year and a half at the Suhrawardy Udyan rally on Sunday.

She will convey an important message at the event, said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

Khaleda had previously spoken at Suhrawardy Udyan at a rally by the Sramik Dal on May 1 last year. Before that she spoke at a public meeting in front of the BNP headquarters in Naya Paltan on Jan 5, 2016.

Though Sunday’s rally is meant to commemorate Nov 7, which the BNP celebrates as ‘National Revolution and Solidarity Day’, it was clear from Mirza Fakhrul’s comments that the event would also address current political concerns.

“Commemorating ‘National Revolution and Solidarity Day’ is not the only goal of the rally, we will also address the continued movement to return democracy to the people. Begum Khaleda Zia will discuss how to consolidate the movement in her message.”

“I believe the message the people will receive from national leader Khaleda Zia is extremely important.”
