There is only one day left for BNP’s mass meeting on December 10. The venue of the rally has been under discussion for several days. After the bloodshed, a new proposal has finally come from the police and BNP regarding the rally venue. This time, BNP wants to hold a mass meeting at Kamalapur Stadium. And the police has proposed the ground of Government Bangla College in Mirpur as a new venue.
Earlier on Thursday night after a meeting with Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Khandkar Golam Farooq, a BNP delegation visited Kamalapur Stadium and Mirpur Bangla College grounds. The delegation led by Mirza Abbas, a member of the party’s standing committee and the chief adviser of the Dhaka divisional mass meeting, went to the ground early on Friday to determine the possible meeting place.
Later, Mirza Abbas told reporters, “I saw two fields. After discussing with the standing committee, I will decide later. BNP workers are not safe anywhere. Can’t make a decision.’
However, after a two-hour meeting with Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Khandaker Golam Farooq at 9:30 p.m., BNP Vice Chairman Barkat Ullah Bulu said, ‘We will visit two places. We will gather wherever we like. We will tell the police which field we like at night.
