To ‘restore’ democracy and people’s rights in the country, BNP has taken a fresh vow to continue its movement for ousting the current regime.
“We’re taking a pledge on this day of our founding anniversary to continue our struggle to remove the monstrous government, and free our leader Khaleda Zia for the restoration of democracy,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at party founder Ziaur Rahman’s grave in capital’s Sher-e-Bangla Nagar around 10am.
Many leaders and activists of BNP accompanied Fakhrul there as the party is observing its 40th founding anniversary.
Alleging that the present government has snatched people’s basic rights and destroyed all the democratic institutions, Fakhrul said, “It’s now the main challenge for BNP to restore democracy and people’s rights in the country.”
Among others, BNP standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Moudud Ahmed, Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan and Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury were present there.
They offered a munajat seeking eternal peace for Zia’s departed soul.
