The 14-party alliance on Thursday decided to hold rallies and meetings across the country to wage a social movement against the repression of women and children.

The alliance spokesperson and ruling Awami League presidium member Mohammad Nasim said this while addressing a view-exchange meeting at the ruling party’s central office on Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital.

The alliance has taken the decision to hold the programmes as incidents of women and child repression are occurring at different places across the country, he said.

The alliance will hold rallies in districts and upazilas across the country to make people aware about the issue, he said.

Nasim said that country’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had struggled for establishing truth during his life time.

‘So we have to fight for truth and justice during the Mujib year,’ he said and announced elaborate programmes to mark the year.

A protest rally against women and child repression will be held at the central Shahid Minar in the capital at 3:00pm on March 1, in Bogura on March 4 and in Naogaon on March 10.

On the birth centenary of Mujibur on March 17, the alliance will also light candles in front of the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban at 6:00pm and respect will be shown at the portrait of Mujibur in front of the Bangabandhu Bhaban on Road 12 in Dhanmondi.

Similar events will also be held in all the districts and upazilas.

Chaired by Nasim, the view of exchange meeting also was attended, among others, by Bangladesh Workers Party president Rashed Khan Menon, Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal president Hasanul Haq Inu, Ganotantri Party general secretary Shahadat Hossain, the ruling party’s advisory council member Mozaffar Hossain Paltu, its leaders Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury and Dilip Roy and its deputy office secretary Sayem Khan.
