DOT Desk: Saying Bangladesh was moving towards one-party rule, with the voting rights of the people being snatched away, BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul yesterday once again reiterated that the next election will be held under a caretaker government, reports TBS.
Speaking to reporters after paying tributes at the mausoleum of former president Ziaur Rahman on the occasion of his 42nd death anniversary, he repeated demands made earlier. “We demand the resignation of the government, dissolution of the parliament and an election under a neutral government. We will not budge from this position for a moment.”
Fakhrul said the government had kept BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia under house arrest, while her son Tarique Rahman was living in exile.
“Attempts are being made to suppress 35 lakh people by harassing them with false cases. This time, the martyrdom anniversary of this leader will give us a new motivation. We have taken a new vow to restore the lost democracy. BNP has taken an oath to establish a democratic state,” he said.
