Thanks media, people for helping continue rescue work at collapsed Savar building
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called upon the BNP-led 18-party alliance and Hefajat-e Islam to postpone their rally and Dhaka siege programmes considering the sufferings of the Savar tragedy victims and their relatives.
She made the call during a press briefing live broadcast by the state-owned BTV, Bangladesh Betar and private television and radio stations on Friday evening.
The BNP-led 18-party opposition alliance is due to organise a rally at Shapla Chattar in the capital on Saturday while Hefajat is taking all out preparations to make its Dhaka siege programme on Sunday.
The prime minister in her address gave a detail on the rescue operation being carried out at Savar since the building crashed down on May 24.
She blamed the owners of the factories based in the collapsed building for operating their units even after warning from the industrial police.
