BNP is ready to make any sacrifice to form a greater unity soon with other political parties to ‘restore’ democracy, said the party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.“We need to keep it in mind that a greater unity will not be created if we don’t make some sacrifices,” said the BNP leader while speaking at a discussion at the party’s central office in Nayapaltan.
Mentioning that country’s people want a greater unity Fakhrul said, “I believe the national unity will be forged very soon to restore democracy and free our leader (Khaleda) though united efforts against the autocratic regime.”Terming the current Awami League government ‘monstrous’, he said it should be defeated through forging the unity with other political parties.Referring to Khaleda Zia’s effort to form a national unity before going to jail, Fakhrul said, “As per her direction, we’re discussing with other parties to create the national unity. The process is on, and we hope we’ll come out successful.”Talking about the makeshift court in the jailhouse for Khaleda’s trial in the graft case, he said, “It’s an inhuman decision of the government. The trial can’t be held in a small room in jail. It’s nothing but a camera trial.”
He urged the government to free their chairperson and allow her to receive treatment in any specialised hospital as she is very sick.Pointing to the party activists, Fakhrul said, “The government has created a hell-like situation across the country by filing false cases. The country is now under the grip of a dangerous devil. We’ll have to defeat it with our strength together with people.”-Ittefaq
