The rally will be held in front of BNP’s Nayapaltan central office in the afternoon, where senior party leaders will address.
Earlier, BNP along with its alliance partners, including Jamaat-e-Islam, was scheduled to hold a rally under the banner of the BNP-led 18-party alliance on February 9.
The party, however, postponed the rally citing that they did not get permission from the Dhaka Metropolitan Police for the rally.
Party insiders, however, said BNP took the decision showing respect to the mass demonstrations at Shahbagh seeking capital punishment of all the war criminals, including Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Mollah.
Though the main opposition has long been in movement with its alliance partners for restoration of the caretaker government, this time BNP is staging the rally without its allies, mainly Jamaat, in an apparent move to avoid criticisms from the Shahbagh protesters.
Meanwhile, in a press release on Saturday BNP requested the city dwellers, especially leaders and activists of the party and its associate bodies, to make the rally a success.
Earlier on Friday, BNP Dhaka city unit held a joint meeting of the party and elaborately discussed how to make the rally successful.
The party leaders directed the different unit leaders to do their best for ensuring the huge participation of the party men in the rally.
