Staff Correspondent: It’s very normal that BNP will demand bail for its chairperson Khaleda Zia.
But this time, the party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir brought two major facts publicly behind their seeking bail to BNP chief Khaleda Zia.
He said, “Today, we are demanding Khaleda’s bail for two reasons. Firstly, as all the cases filed against her were completely arranged. Secondly, pro-government people are getting bail in the cases filed for same grounds. But we are being denied. It is completely illegal.”
Mirza Fakhrul said this while speaking a human chain programme in front of the National Press in the apital on Saturday noon.
Dhaka Metropolitan (South) BNP arranged the human chain demanding unconditional release of all political prisoners including BNP Chief Khaleda Zia and Dhaka Metropolitan (South) BNP president Habib-Un Nabi Khan Sohel.
“Khaleda Zia was sentenced in a case; the same case was filed against today’s PM Sheikh Hasina during 1/1. All the 15 cases of Sheikh Hasina were dismissed. And against Khaleda Zia, more new cases were filed,” he added.
Citing Khaleda Zia’s release as demand of mass people, Fakhrul said, “It’s a demand of country’s general people. Irrespective of party and opinions, all demand release of Khaleda Zia and democracy.”
