72 hours hartal from Sunday

 

 

The BNP-led 20-party alliance has called a countrywide 72-hour hartal from Sunday protesting threats by Awami League leaders to arrest Khaleda Zia.

In a press release this evening, BNP Joint Secretary General Rizvi Ahmed said they will enforce the shutdown across the country from 6:00am the day after tomorrow.

The hartal also meant to protest attacks on the houses and offices of senior BNP leaders and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s recent statements asking police to “do whatever needed to stop the violence”.

The hartal comes on top of the alliance’s countrywide indefinite blockade.

At least 35 people, including 23 without reported link to politics, have died in the political violence that came up from the start of this year, a year after the January 5 national polls.
