Information Minister Hasan Mahmud has said BNP wants to hold their December 10 rally in front of party’s Nayapaltan office fearing poor turnout of people and aiming to create chaos.
Hasan Mahmud made the remark while replying to journalists’ questions at the secretariat on Thursday.
He said BNP already knows that not more than 30 to 50 thousand people will attend their rally. “Even if that’s not the issue they shouldn’t hold a rally blocking a busy road,”he added.
The number of people will not exceed 50,000 if they sit one the one kilometer of Nayapaltan road, said Hasan.
The government can give permission for a rally but it cannot permit holding of a rally planned to create chaos, he said.
