The newly formed convening committee of Sylhet Metropolitan BNP has started the official journey of party activities by visiting Hazrat Shahjalal Mazar.
On Sunday (October 3), a large number of leaders and activists of the BNP and its affiliates and allied organizations were present at the shrine premises at the invitation of Abdul Qayyum Jalali Panki, convener of the newly formed convening committee and Miftah Siddiqui, member secretary.
After visiting the shrine, a huge procession came out from the newly formed committee dargah gate. The procession met at a road rally at Chauhatta Point.
Abdul Qayyum Jalali Panki, convener of the newly formed committee, expressed his sentiments and congratulated Begum Khaleda Zia, Tarique Rahman and BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
He said there was no alternative to the movement for the release of Begum Khaleda Zia, the victim of the conspiracy. Ignoring all the conspiracies and bloodshot eyes of the fascist Awami government and state apparatus, the country leader Tareq Rahman must be brought back to the country through movement.
He said there is no democracy in the country. People do not have freedom of speech and security. There is a silent famine in the country. The common people of the country are suffering from extreme economic crisis. But the Awami government has no qualms about it. Because they have no accountability. They do not need the people’s vote. Once again, they are in the process of selecting a blueprint. They have made arrangements to perpetuate the power. So they do not care about the people of the country. Opposing views are being suppressed. But we promise, we will free the independent sovereign Bangladesh from the shackles of subjugation. InshaAllah, I will bring back democracy in the country through the release of Begum Khaleda Zia.
Also present at the rally were Barrister Abdus Salam, International Affairs Secretary of BNP Central Committee, Abdur Razzak, Assistant Secretary for Micro Credit, Abul Kaher Chowdhury Shamim, Humayun Kabir Shahin, Joint Convener of Mahanagar BNP, Farhad Chowdhury Shamim, Councilor and Rezaul Hasan Koyes.
