Gono Forum President Dr. Kamal Hossain is seeking to forge a national unity against the government. He is preparing to organize a grand rally in Suhrawardy Udyan on Sep 22 for this purpose. Dr. Kamal has already asked the police for permission for organizing the rally.
Bikalpadhara Bangladesh President AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury, Bangladesh Krishak Sramik Janata League President Kader Siddiqui, Convener of Nagorik Oikko Mahmudur Rahman Manna and ASM Abdur Rob of JSD have been invited in the general assembly. BNP`s Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir was also invited as well. It means, except for the ruling Awami League and Jamaat, all other political parties have been invited to the rally. Besides, representatives of civil society were also invited to give the rally an inclusive nature. SHUJAN`s Secretary Badiul Alam Majumdar, the former adviser to the caretaker government Hafiz Uddin Ahmed and economist and educationist Akbar Ali Khan will attend the rally.
Dr. Kamal said that through this rally, the journey of the united opposition party will begin. However, there will be no Jamaat-e-Islami and right-wing Islamic parties in the alliance.
