Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) will stage a demonstration all over the country tomorrow (Sunday) demanding the unconditional release of its Chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail.

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir announced the programme at a press briefing at the party's Nayapaltan central office in Dhaka on Saturday.

BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi and other central leaders were present at the press briefing.

On February 8 last year, Khaleda was sent to jail after a special court sentenced her to five years' rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
