BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul has announced that will not go to the elections without a non-partisan caretaker government.
He said this while inaugurating the party's pre-announced 'Youth Road March' program which started from the front of the BNP office at the Grand Hotel intersection in Rangpur on Saturday (September 16) morning. While warning against the Awami League government, Mirza Fakhrul said, "The BNP's road march program start outside Dhaka will end with the fall of the government."
Many activists of BNP have been detained. Bail is not given in lower court. Alleging that the leaders and workers of BNP have been kept in jail day after day in false cases, Fakhrul further said, "Today's road march of the youth to demand the resignation of this looter, unelected and fascist government," BNP Secretary General said, "Rangpur has a great tradition." The tradition here is the tradition of standing up against injustice. Today's youth from Rangpur are calling the people of the country to restore this country.
Mirza Fakhrul said, "The judicial system of the country has been destroyed. Opposition party leaders are not given bail if they go to court. If we can hold elections under a neutral caretaker government through this movement, then we will form a national government.
BNP Secretary General said, "We want to say clearly, if our one-point demand is not accepted, then we will continue the movement with millions of young generation."
Referring to the house arrest of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, he said, 'This government has kept BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia under house arrest. I went to see him yesterday (Friday) night too. Doctors are also worried about him. Doctors say, there is no chance to treat Khaleda Zia here. He needs to be taken abroad very soon for his treatment.
