BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi made this evening's call in a press release after a meeting of party members and activists inside and outside BSMMU, soon after having details that Khaleda Zia would be released.
He asked his party men from their respective places to give prayers to fix the current situation.
