Leaders and activists of BNP district unit yesterday called for a dawn-to-dusk hatal in Munshiganj Sunday protesting the killing a local BNP activist.
The BNP leaders alleged that ruling party cadres attacked them while they were going to Dhaka to attend the grand rally on Wednesday and killed BNP activist Akbar Hossain.
However, organising secretary of the district Awami League Jamal Uddin claimed that Akbar was not a BNP activist. BNP is trying to create anarchy only to tarnish the image of the government, he added.
District BNP President Abdul Hai and General Secretary Ali Asgor Mallik called upon all the activists to make the hartal successful.
