BNP's divisional rally in Cumilla has begun with thousands of party activists thronging the Cumilla Town Hall ground, the rally venue.
Local party leaders started addressing the rally around 11:00am.
BNP men have been arriving at the venue from Feni, Noakhali, Chandpur, Lakshmipur, Brahmanbaria and other districts since early morning.
Nur Hossain, a BNP activist from Nangalkot, said he joined the rally to show no-confidence to the government.
"I came here on Thursday night and will return home today after the rally."
