More than 2,200 leaders and activists of BNP were detained in the last three days after Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s promise of “no more political arrests”, BNP alleged.
“PM Hasina promised Jatiya Oikyafront that political leaders and activists won’t be arrested anymore,” said BNP’s Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
But, over 2,200 BNP leaders and activists were held countrywide centering Oikyafront’s rally on Tuesday in the last 72 hours, Rizvi alleged in a press briefing.
Rizvi, who was speaking at the Nayapaltan central office of BNP, condemned the arrests.
Oikya Front yesterdat held second round of pre-election dialogue with the ruling alliance at Gono Bhaban.
But, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader, after the meeting, said that Prime Minister Hasina will be considering release of political prisoners.
