BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia expressed her wish to work together for the sake of democracy, also to solve the problems with talks immediately.
She made the overture while addressing a rally in front of the BNP headquarters at Naya Paltan in the capital to mark the second anniversary of the January 5 national elections that the party had boycotted.
BNP chief alleged that last municipal poll was not fair. Referring to the victory of few BNP-backed mayoral candidates, she said no election under the Awami League government will be fair.
Addressing Awami League leaders, she said, “Return to the right path and the path of democracy. Or else, the people can rise anytime.” She reiterated her party’s demand for a snap election under a non-party caretaker administration.
The BNP and its political allies had enforced agitations for over three months early last year, marking the first anniversary of the January 4 polls, demanding a rerun of the election under a caretaker government.
She alleged that the government was using law enforcers to harass and torture ‘opposition’ leaders. The BNP chief said, “We all want to live together. Bangladesh is a small country. We can develop Bangladesh as a nice country if we work together,” according to bdnews24.com. -Mithun
