BNP leaders enter Nayapaltan central office after 2.5 months

BNP reopened its central office in Dhaka's Nayapaltan today (Jan 11) for the first time in 75 days since it was locked following a clash with police.

Around 10:30am, a group of BNP leaders and activists led by Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi broke open the padlock on the main gate and entered the premises.

They entered the office while shouting various slogans in the name of party founder Ziaur Rahman and Chairperson Khaleda Zia.

Rizvi said: “We entered BNP’s central office by breaking the lock. A massive rally was foiled through a brutal crackdown by the government’s subservient law-enforcement agencies on October 28…later police locked the office.”

BNP’s standing committee members, led by Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan, will hold a press conference — on the national election held on January 7 — at the office at 3 pm, he said.
