The BNP-led 20-party alliance has announced countrywide agitation programme for Sunday apparently in a new strategy to get away from hartal ahead of the city corporation polls.
As part of the programme, the alliance will stage demonstration at district, upazila, poursabha levels and each thana towns across the country demanding the safe return of the victims of enforced disappearance including Salahuddin Ahmed and protesting killing of opposition leaders and activists and mass arrest.The alliance enforced hartal five days in a week since February 1 but it dropped the hartal from Wednesday last to mark the Independence and National Day.
BNP joint secretary general Barkatullah Bulu announced the fresh programme on behalf of the party chairperson Khaleda Zia from an undisclosed location.
“The peaceful agitation programme however will be staged along with the ongoing nationwide blockade programme,” said the statement.
The alliance alleged that the government filed false cases implicating thousands of opposition leaders and activists including senior leaders so that they cannot raise their voice against the misdeeds and plunder of the ruling party people.
Responding to the Prime Minister’s remarks that Khaleda Zia has failed in her 81 days of movement, Barkatullah Bulu called upon her to stand in the queue of the people shunning the dependence of law enforcers to understand whether the movement has been successful or not.
“The people will make it clear whether the movement is successful or not if the government takes measures to hold a national election under a non-partisan and neutral government in accordance with people’s demand,” he said.
The BNP spokesperson said as the people made no mistakes to give a befitting reply to the misrule of the government by ensuring the landslide victory of BNP candidates in five city corporation they would ascertain the victory of the 20-party alliance also in the forthcoming three city corporation polls. – Staff Reporter
