BNP’s sit-in programme foiled in Natore

The sit-in programme of BNP foiled in Natore sadar upazila on Saturday after an attack was carried out allegedly from a peace march of Awami League.

As part of the central programme schedule, BNP leaders and activists tried to go to the party office at Alaipur in the city around 2pm.

Police brought the situation under control.

District unit BNP convenor committee member Farhad Ali Dewan condemned the attack and demanded immediate action to bring the attackers under law.

BNP central organising secretary Ruhil Quddus Dulu condemned the attack and termed it as the expression of AL’s autocratic behaviour.

District AL general secretary Shafiqul Islam denied the allegation.
