BNP’s new standing committee’s maiden meeting Thursday


The newly formed BNP standing committee is going to hold its first meeting on Thursday night to discuss the country’s latest political situation, party’s organisational issues and work out its next course of action.The meeting, convened by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, will be held at her Gulshan office at 8:30pm, her media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan told UNB on Wednesday.
Besides, the BNP chief will hold a meeting with the top leaders of her party-led 20-party alliance on Saturday night at the same venue.
On August 6, BNP announced its full-fledged executive and standing committees, nearly four and a half months after its national council held on March 19.
Mirza Fakhrul, Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury and Salahuddin Ahmed, now facing trial in India, got entry to the 19-member standing committee.
However, names for two posts –17 and 18 number positions in the BNP policymaking body -– are not yet announced.
There has been strong resentment among a group of party leaders as they think they have not been properly evaluated in the new committees.
During the meeting with party standing committee members, BNP insiders said Khaleda is likely to take their opinions about the party’s new committees, and suggestions to remove the grievances of ‘deprived’ leaders.
She may also discuss with both the BNP standing committee members and 20-party leaders about her party’s initiative to forge a national unity and work out protest programmes against the construction of Rampal Power Plant near the Sundarbans, government’s move to hike in gas tariffs and militancy issue.
