Dhaka:  Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Chairperson Khaleda Zia is going to sit in a meeting with the top leaders of her party-led 20-Party Alliance on Wednesday night to discuss Bangladesh’s latest political situation and work out its next course of action.

‘The meeting of the 20-Party Alliance will be held at BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office at about 8:30pm,’ said Khaleda Zia’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan Tuesday.

A BNP leader close to Khaleda Zia wishing anonymity said the 20-party leaders will discuss the country’s latest political situation and chalk out its next course of action, reports news agency UNB.

He said issues like the Chief Justice’s resignation, upcoming city polls, including Rangpur ones, framework of the election time government, Khaleda Zia’s Suhrawardy Udyan Rally and Cox’s Bazar tour and her plan to visit some other cities and districts may come up for discussions at the meeting.

The BNP leader also said Khaleda Zia may seek opinions of the alliance leaders about the election-time government framework and whether she should unveil her party’s election-time supportive government formula.

It will be the BNP chief’s first meeting with the 20 party leaders after she returned home from the UK receiving medical treatment.
