Anarchy over Khaleda verdict won’t be allowed: Minister

UNB

Housing and Public Works Minister Eng Mosharraf Hossain yesterday told Parliament that the people of the country will not allow any anarchy in the country following the verdict 'against" BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia inthe Zia Orphanage Trust graft case, reports UNB.

"If she (Khaleda) is punished in the case, we, people across the country, won't allow anybody to create anarchy in the country," he said. The minister, however, said they will have no objection if Khaleda comes out clean in the graft case. Recalling BNP-led "anarchy" and burning people in the past, he said they do not want to see that country falls into another anarchy and chaotic situation.

OnFebruary 8, a Dhaka court will announce the verdict in a graft case against Khaleda Zia.

BNP has threatened to be present on the streets in Dhaka on the day while the Awami League is reportedly planning to resist them, triggering fresh political tensions.

Minister Mosharraf Hossain accused Khaleda of misusing funds of orphans. He urged Khaleda Zia to accept whatever verdict comes from the court, and said cases were filed against him too and he faced court.

Awami League senior leaders said they have also instructed their party leaders and activists to be vigilant on the streets that day so that their main rival party activists cannot create any "chaos" over the court verdict.

Police officials at a meeting led by new IGP Mohammad Javed Patwary on Thursday evening decided not to allow BNP members to create any trouble in the city onFebruary 8, no matter what the court judgment is.
