Khaleda called for national dialogue


The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chairperson, Khaleda Zia, on Thursday called on the government to initiate a national dialogue to bring an end to the crisis facing Bangladesh.“We hope that good sense will prevail upon the government and it will shun its authoritarian attitude in order to create an atmosphere for initiating a national dialogue in the greater interests of the country and its people,” Khaleda, who is now staying in London, said in a statement signed by party’s spokesman Asaduzzaman Ripon.Also a former prime minister, Khaleda said the government must realise the reasons behind the present crisis. “The government, itself, created the crisis. The political crisis has begun whenever the government scrapped the non-party caretaker government system.”Calling for a national consensus on some fundamental issues, the BNP chairperson said, “Our party thinks that organising a national election under a neutral government without any further delay has been an imperative to come out of the crisis.”
