Among them, Jubo League Chairman Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash was present as the chief guest at Dhanmondi-32 of Dhaka-10 constituency under Dhaka Metropolitan Jubo League South at 12 noon.

Those who cause the rise of militancy in this country. That organization has given a 2-day blockade today, they had already done so. Recently their 2 types of masks have been exposed. One is that recently they are trying to deceive people in the name of peaceful assembly. What a despicable, brutal killing of a policeman.

Because they don’t have the power to openly confront the Awami League. He also said that no political party will be successful without people’s involvement. People clearly know that BNP is a fake and deceitful party. They are a group of lies and propaganda.
