BNP won’t go for conflicting programs now: Fakhrul


PV Desk : BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said his party will not hold any political programs at this moment that create conflicts.

However, he also alleged that the government has deliberately barred BNP to hold rally marking The Revolution and Solidarity Day on Nov 7 because of the CPC conference.

Fakhrul made the remarks at a press conference in city’s Nayapaltan BNP office on Tuesday noon (Nov 7).

He said, “We observe The Revolution and Solidarity Day every year by holding rally and placing floral wreath at BNP founder Ziaur Rahman’s tomb. It is a significant day for us but government has deprived us of that opportunity.”

Mentioning that the AL government exiled the Chief Justice SK Sinha in an unprecedented manner, Fakhrul said, “The government is trying to establish a one-party rule in different ways. We have rescheduled our program on Nov 12. Hopefully government will cooperate.”

Fakhrul finally said Ziaur Rahman established the freedom of the press and multi-party democracy. It was for his endeavor, we have established democracy and freedom of expression in Bangladesh.

BNP Standing Committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy, Vice Chairman Dr. AZM Zahid, Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi, Joint Secretary General Habib-un Nabi Khan Sohel among others were present at the event.
