BNP lawmakers to meet Speaker

REF:  BNP MPs will meet Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury on Thursday morning.Shairul Kabir Khan, a BNP press functionary, said that the meeting had been scheduled at 10.30am at the Speaker’s office.

 

He, however, declined to disclose what the delegation, led by Opposition chief whip Joynul Abdin Farroque, will discuss with the Speaker.

A senior BNP leader said matters like ‘police and the government’s obstruction’ to Opposition programmes and the ‘arrest and harassment’ of party leaders and activists could be discussed.

The 18-party opposition alliance led by the BNP is enforcing a non-stop road, rail and waterways blockade from Jan 1 after failing to hold its ‘march to Dhaka’ and Naya Paltan rally on Dec 29.
