Fakhrul reiterates Khaleda’s call for nat’l unity


BNP on Tuesday urged the government to come up with a positive response to the call of its chairperson Khaleda Zia for forging a national unity to tackle militancy and terrorism rising above party interests.“The country’s people are now not well at all. The entire nation has got stunned and panicked following the Gulshan attack. So, I echo our chairperson’s call to create a national unity to resist dangerous terrorism and militancy,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
Speaking at a press briefing at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office, he further said, “It’s not the right time to engage in mudslinging and do party politics. We must now create a national unity rising above party interest, and the ruling party should take the lead.”
Fakhrul said they hoped that the government would respond positively to their chairperson’s call for a national unity. “But unfortunately, we have seen some ruling party senior leaders are taking the issue otherwise and attaching some conditions. There’s no question of tagging any condition under the current circumstances. The entire nation must get united to defeat the dangerous demon which has now emerged in the country.”
He said their party has got frustrated as the ruling party outright turned down Khaleda’s call for national unity under the current context of the country.
The BNP leader, however, said they still hope the government and the ruling party will take initiatives for the national unity shunning its waywardness in the interest of the country and its people.
Mentioning that the government must take initiatives to unite the nation, he said, “The government is responsible for what are happening now. It’s also responsible for the loss of many lives. The terrible and inhuman incident took place due to their (govt’s) failure.”
Fakhrul said the nation will have to get united once again with the same the spirit they showed during the Liberation War to fight against terrorism and militancy. “
