And when we asked for permission for our rally in the town hall ground, the government gave permission to the party workers’ organization instead of giving us permission. However, they have been given verbal permission to hold a rally at Bhola Tank Road in the city. This rally will be successful by ignoring the threat of attack by government party leaders and workers. Our demand is the demand of the general public. We will not back down from our moral position to make that demand.

He is in state power with an oath to protect that constitution; Or all the government officials who are working in Jessore to keep the constitution coherent will surely consider it. The responsibility is theirs. I am not saying anything beyond my democratic rights. Awami League has taken steps to create conflict everywhere. They tried with the administration, they tried by stopping the cars and horses but they left no way. No new path has been opened. We will avoid conflict and rally.
