General Zia, who founded the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) in 1978, was assassinated by a group of army officers at the Chittagong Circuit House on May 30, 1981. At that time, Maj Gen Abul Manzoor was the General Officer Commanding (GOC) of the 24th infantry battalion of Chittagong.

The then president Zia went to Chittagong in the morning of May 29 to quell a tension between two rival groups of the BNP.

In observance of the day, black flags will be hoisted and party flags kept at half-mast atop the offices of the party and its associate bodies, including Naya Paltan headquarters at 6am on Sunday.

Besides, party senior leaders will place wreaths at Zia's grave at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar in the morning.

BNP organized a virtual discussion on Saturday marking the day.
