BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Friday said their party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam went to the UN Headquarters in New York at the invitation of its Secretary General to present the country’s “current real scenario”, not to make any complaint.

“Our secretary general didn’t go to the UN on his own. He went there at the invitation of the UN Secretary General,” he said while speaking at a discussion, reports UNB.

Turning down the ruling party leaders’ allegation that Fakhrul went to the UN to lodge complaints, the BNP leader said, “Our secretary general went there to depict the country’s real scenario, not to the make complaints.”

Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, said Fakhrul will also present before the UN the prevailing situation of the country, oppression and repression on opposition leaders and activists, and on common people and violation of human rights.

Bangladesh Youth Forum, a pro-BNP platform, arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club.

On September 12, Mirza Fakhrul along with party executive committee member Tabith Awal went to New York reportedly at the invitation of UN Secretary General António Guterres’.

Moudud said the UN Secretary General invited their party leaders to its headquarters as he could not mange time to meet them during his recent visit to Bangladesh.

Moudud said there is no atmosphere for credible polls in the country, though only three months are left for arranging the election. “Is it a complaint to talk about election atmosphere?”

He said the government has got nervous and envious as the UN Secretary General invited the BNP leaders to New York. “They (AL leaders) are now making unguarded remarks (on Fakhrul’s tour) out of their jealousy.”

The BNP leader said the government’s intention is very bad as it is trying to hold another ‘unilateral’ election to cling to power. “But they won’t be able to hold another 2014-like election in the country.”

He warned that that their party together with people will give the government a befitting reply on the streets by creating a national unity if it does not reach an understanding to hold the next polls under a non-party neutral administration by dissolving the current parliament and cabinet.
