Some people have become rich indulging in 'mega corruption' in the name of mega projects while the condition of the common people is getting worse day by day, said BNP Standing Committee member Nazrul Islam Khan on Saturday.
"We have one demand....this government has to resign. Dissolve parliament and hold an election under a caretaker government," said the BNP leader while inaugurating the party's road march from Barishal to Patuakhali under Barishal division at Bangabandhu Uddyan in the town around 11 am.
Leaders and activists of BNP and its associate bodies from six districts under the division joined the road march.
"Apart from our leaders and workers, journalists are not spared when anyone speak out against the irregularities of the government. So dissolution of parliament and arranging the election under a caretaker government has become our lone demand," he added.
Earlier on September 18, BNP announced a 15-day programme till October 3, including road marches, as part of their ongoing one point-movement demanding resignation of the government.
The programme was extended by two days till October 5 on Thursday.
