14-party's 6-day road march from July 25

Awami League (AL)-led 14-party opposition combine last night announced a six-day road march from July 25 to press home its demand for reforms in the caretaker government system and the Election Commission (EC).

AL General Secretary Abdul Jalil announced the fresh action programme after a meeting of the opposition lineup with AL presidium member Abdur Razzak in the chair.

The road march will start from Tongi to Mohakhali on July 25, Kanchpur to Jatrabari on July 26, in all unions and upazila headquarters on July 27, in district headquarters on July 28, Jinjira to Muktangon on July 29 and Amin Bazar to Russell Square on July 30.

Jalil demanded reconstitution of the Election Commission on the basis of a consensus.

Asked about one-to-one dialogue between the BNP secretary general and the AL general secretary on the electoral reform, Jalil said the offer must come from the ruling party because the government will have to implement the reform proposal.

He said the ruling party is buying time on the pretext of different proposals at different times.
