BNP on Sunday got permission to stage a human chain demonstration in the capital today demanding its Chairperson Khaleda Zia's release from jail.
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) commissioner gave the verbal permission to form the human chain in front of the National Press Club.
As part of their countrywide program, he said, they will observe the demonstration rally in front of the Jatiya Press Club from 11am to 12pm.
The BNP leader said their party's all other district and metropolitan city units will also observe the program today.
Rizvi said their party will also observe a two-hour token hunger strike on Wednesday in all districts and met-ropolitan cities to press the same demand.
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has been in jail since a special court convicted her in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
