BNP Vice Chairman Shamsuzzaman Dudu alleged that the transport strike on 18 routes in Khulna from Friday was called ‘after getting government’s signal’ to spoil BNP’s divisional rally billed for October 22 .
The BNP leader said this at Khulna BNP Office on Thursday at a press briefing.
To prevent the people of 10 districts of Khulna from joining the rally on October 22, the strike has been called and now threat is being given to stop trawler and boat movement, he added.
“Yesterday and today Awami League and Bangladesh Chhatra League activists snatched and vandilised BNP’s mike during publicity,” said the BNP leader.
He also alleged that police are threatening and searching houses of Khulna BNP leaders and activists.
“In a word, the ruling party is trying to make the peaceful environment in Khulna turbulent but BNP’s divisional rally will be held peacefully at any coast,” said Shamsuzzaman Dudu.
