Besides, the authorities of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) requested the private Television channels of the country not to broadcast BNP’s grand rally live for the sake of the state and countrymen.

DMP deployed over 20,000 police and RAB personnel to build a multi-tier security measures in and around the capital during the grand rally.
