protest against Khaleda jail term

BNP plans public rallies in city, dists

STAFF REPORTER

The BNP will start holding public meetings at the city and district levels from this month, protesting against the imprisonment of chairperson Khaleda Zia in what it calls a “false and fabricated case”. The meetings will be held across the country in phases. Not only will the party demand her release, it will also try to drum up support in favour of its demand for holding the next polls under a neutral government. Former ministers, lawmakers, and other central leaders will take part in the public meetings in their respective areas, said party leaders. The decision was taken at a two-hour-long party meeting at the chairperson’s Gulshan political office yesterday afternoon. Members of the party standing committee, the chairperson’s advisers, vice-chairmen, and the organizing secretaries attended it.

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir presided over the meeting. He expressed deep concern over the delay in Khaleda’s release on bail. He also vowed to continue with the peaceful course of action until she was released, meeting sources said. The other leaders, too, reportedly expressed their determination to not take part in the next national polls with Khaleda in jail.

Emerging from the meeting, Mirza Alamgir told reporters that they condemned the chairperson’s jail term in a false and fabricated case. He said they discussed the next course of action, which will be announced later. The BNP leader also condemned the attack on writer-academic Dr Md Zafar Iqbal and termed the incident as an evil design of vested quarters. Replying to a question, he said Khaleda has been sent to jail to keep her out of the election process.

Vice-chairman Maj. (Retd) Hafizuddin Ahmed said it was a routine meeting to discuss different organizational matters. He said the party leaders had decided to not take part in the election with the chairperson in jail. They will continue with the non-violent protest until she is released. BNP organizing secretary Ruhul Quddus Talukder Dulu also said that the party will continue with the democratic and peaceful protest.
