As part of its seven-day scheduled program, BNP will form a human chain in the city on Wednesday demanding its chairperson Khaleda Zia’s release from jail.

BNP assistant organizing secretary Abdus Salam Azad said leaders and activists of the party will stage the program in front of the Jatiya Press Club from 11 am to 12 noon.

Party senior leaders, including its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and standing committee members, are expected to address the program.

Earlier on Sunday, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced the weeklong fresh program, including the human chain, demanding Khaleda’s release from jail.

On February 8, Khaleda Zia was sent to Old Dhaka Central Jail after a special court sentenced her to five years` rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

After the jailing of Khaleda, the party observed different peaceful programs, including leaflet distribution, countrywide demonstration, human-chain formation, sit-in, token hunger-strike, protest procession in different phases, demanding her release.-UNB
