Khaleda in meeting with newly formed standing committee


BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia sat with members of her party’s newly formed standing committee tonight (Thursday night) to discuss the country’s latest political situation, party’s organisational issues and work out its next course of action.The meeting began around 9:10 pm at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office with Khaleda in the chair. It’s the first meeting of the party’s newly formed policymaking body.
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 Islam Alamgir, Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury and Salahuddin Ahmed, now facing trial in India, got entry to the 19-member standing committee. However, the 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 the 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 them 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 gas tariff and militancy issue.
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.
