A BNP leader close to Khaleda said a six-member BNP delegation, including party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Mahbubur Rahman, Nazrul Islam Khan, chairperson’s advisers Reaz Rahman and Sabihuddin Ahmed, will accompany Khaleda.
During the meeting, he said the BNP chief will discuss a wide rage of issues relating to the bilateral interests, Bangladesh’s latest political situation and next general election.
Earlier in the day, BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy at a programme hoped that the Chinese President’s tour will produce positive outcomes for the country protecting mutual interests of the two friendly nations.
“We welcome his tour, but don’t know with which offers the Chinese President is coming or what our country is seeking from him. We’re completely in the dark, but we hope it’ll bring good for the county,” the BNP leader said.
