BNP yesterday said party chairperson Khaleda Zia went to London to protect the peoples interest not to hatch any conspiracy.
“She (Khaleda) will discuss Bangladesh’s problem, its future and party’s internal affairs and future course of action,” said standing committee member ASM Hannan Shah while speaking at a roundtable at the National Press Club.
His comments came following the remarks of a section of Awami League leaders that the BNP chairperson went to London for hatching conspiracy against the country.
Hannan Shah alleged that the country has now turned into a greater prison where people cannot express their opinions freely.
He also accused the government of destroying all democratic institutions in the country.
The meeting organised by Zia Parisahd was held with its chairman Dr Abdul Quddus in the chair.
BNP leaders–Shamsuzzaman Dudu and Prof Abul Kalam Azad, among others, also addressed the meeting.
Meanwhile, addressing a memorial meeting at Jatiya Press Club, BNP leader Shah Moazzem Hossain yesterday criticised the nomination of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for the UN environmental award “Champion of the Earth.”
“It is ridiculous to give UN environmental award the “Champion of the Earth” to Sheikh Hasina as Dhaka has become a worst liveable city in the world,” he said.
The BNP leader also called the Prime Minister to announce of the fresh election under a non-partisan government.
Presided over by KM Rakibul Islam Ripon, president of the organisaiton, the meeting was also addressed among others, by Juba Dal leader Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal, Shah Mohammad Abu Zafar and Sramik Dal president Anwar Hossain.
