Awami League will not be able to hold rally anywhere in the country easily if it creates obstacle to BNP programmes, a senior BNP leader yesterday said without elaborating.
“Awami League’s Mr Hanif has given threat that BNP will not be allowed to hold any programme in the country. I want to ask Hanif—did you buy the country’s ownership? We want to say firmly that Awami League will not be able to hold rally anywhere in the country if any obstacle is created to BNP programme,” BNP joint secretary general Rizvi Ahmed said.
He was addressing a press briefing at BNP’s Naya Paltan central office.AL joint general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif on December 26 told reporters that BNP will not be allowed to stage its political programme anywhere in the country if its senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman does not tender apology for his derogatory remarks on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Speaking at a discussion in East London, Tarique on December 15 said Sheikh Mujib in a sense is a big Rajakar as he disbanded his own political party.
Speaking in the briefing Rizvi Ahmed said Sheikh Hasina’s government was panicked to see Khaleda Zia’s popularity as large crowds are attending at her rallies in different parts of the country.
Pointing at Jubodal chief Moazzem Hossain Alal’s Saturday arrest, Rizvi said the government claims that they are not worried about BNP’s agitation.
“Then why they [government]arrested Alal? Why police are conducting raids on BNP leaders’ houses to arrest them? Because the government’s position is very vulnerable. They get fear of loosing power when they hear about our movement,” Rizvi said.
Demanding release of Alal and BNP standing committee member Goyeshwar Chandra Roy, Rizvi called upon his party’s workers to stay on streets for making the 20-party alliance sponsored countrywide today’s hartal a success. – Staff Reporter
