Staff Reporter :
BNP will stage protest rallies across the country today against the unusual hike in the prices of essentials, including onion.
The decision was taken at a meeting of BNP standing committee members held at the party Chairperson's Gulshan office on Saturday.
"The price of onion has unusually increased and it's already proved that a government-backed syndicate is involved with it. Not only onion, but also the prices of all the essentials marked a sharp rise due to the government's failure," said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
Briefing reporters after the meeting, he further
said, "We'll hold protest rallies across the country, including Dhaka on Monday against the unusual increase in the prices of onion and other essentials."
Fakhrul said, their party also decided to participate in the public hearing to be held on November 28 on the government's proposal to raise the power tariff again.
He said, a team of their party, led by its Standing Committee Member Iqbal Hasan Mahmud Tuku will join the public hearing and present their party's views on it.
