BNP has road marched from Bhairab to Sylhet after two divisions in the northern region with a unilateral demand for the fall of the government.
After the inaugural rally at Bhairav bus stand on Thursday morning, the road march started and the convoy reached Sylhet by evening. On the way, the road march fleet fell under the rain in Sherpur of Moulvibazar. Disregarding the rain, the leaders of the district welcomed the road march fleet.

If the government does not accept the one-sided demands of these programs, more strict programs will be given step by step. Be prepared for strict programs including strikes, blockades.
