Khaleda Zia’s proper treatment not possible at BSMMU: Fakhrul
Dhaka: BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday said he does not believe that their chairperson Khaleda Zia will get proper treatment at the state-controlled Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), reports the UNB.
Inaugurating the fourth council of Kalyan Party at Communist Party’s Purana Paltan office, he said, ‘I don’t think she (Khaleda) will get the proper treatment there (BSMMU).’
The BNP leader criticised the government for taking Khaleda to BSMMU despite their repeated requests to the Home Minister for allowing her to receive treatment at a specialised hospital.
‘Khaleda Zia is very sick. Her condition deteriorated so badly that she can’t walk and eat anything properly. She’s been subjected to repression and this is inhumane,’ Fakhrul observed.
He alleged that the government has buried politics as part of a plot to depoliticised the country. ‘There’s now no politics in the country.’
The BNP also said the government has destroyed the country’s all institutions, the spirit of the Liberation War and all the achievements of the 1971.
He came down heavily on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her remark that no ‘false’ case was filed against BNP leaders. ‘People don’t believe such a comment.’
Fakhrul said the government not only filed thousands of ‘false’ cases, including over 4,000 fictitious ones, against the opposition leaders and activists.
He urged BNP leaders and activists not to get frustrated as it was Awami League not their party got defeated in the December-30 polls.
The BNP leader said their party will wage an unstoppable movement together with people to unseat the current government and free their chairperson from jail.
He also said their two alliances—Jatiya Oikyafront and the 20-party—are united. ‘ There’s no problem in our alliances. We’ve got united with a goal to restore democracy, and we’ll achieve it with united efforts.’
At the council, Syed Muhammad Ibrahim was reelected as chairman of Kalyan Party which was formed in 2007.
