Jatiyatabadi Sramik Dal, the labour wing of BNP, wants to hold a rally at city’s Suhrawardy Udyan on May 1 to observe May Day.
BNP standing committee member Nazrul Islam Khan announced this at a discussion programme at Dhaka Reporters Unity on Saturday.
He expressed his hope that the government will allow Sramik Dal to hold the rally adding that, “It has already sought permission to hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on the day.”
“There is no scope for denying us permission by resorting to any trick as we know that no other organisation has sought permission to hold similar programme at the same venue, at least we have not heard that,” said the BNP leader.
In 2014 and 2016, the organization held rally at the same venue to observe May Day.
