United Kingdom BNP has scheduled a mass march in London today (August 29) to demand the resignation of the current government in Bangladesh. The March for Democracy march started at noon local time from Hyde Park Corner in central London.
Various pro-BNP organizations and professionals also joined the rally.
Former Deputy Mayor of Tower Hamlets Council, Ahid Ahmed, who participated in the meeting, told this reporter that it was the largest gathering of Bangladeshis in the commemoration period in terms of mass among the Bangladeshi community after the Great Liberation War.
It is known that for the success of this gathering, the president and general secretary of the United Kingdom BNP has been visiting the 42 zones of the United Kingdom BNP for the past one month and holding series meetings with the leaders of the zonal committee. Leaflets inviting people to join the march program were distributed in mosque markets and Bangladeshi-dominated areas across the UK. About 250,000 Bangladeshis live in Greater East London alone. The target of at least 10,000 public gatherings of the Bangladeshi community in Britain, which is about 12 lakh Bangladeshis, was on the agenda.
BNP party leaders and supporters took part in the rally by taking buses, private cars and taxicabs from 42 zones. Apart from this, activists from different countries of Europe also participated.
