BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia in a statement on Thursday said the ongoing movements would be continued until it reached its goal.
She also called upon all to participate in the movement to restore the voting rights of the people.
BNP-led 20-party alliance has been enforcing nonstop blockade and frequent hartals since January 6 to press home its demand to hold a fresh election under a caretaker government.
Having failed to come out of her Gulshan office to attend a planned rally of the alliance, Khaleda declared non-stop roads, railways and waterways blockade.
BNP chairperson voiced her optimism that their movement will surely reach its target.
“I want to say clearly that we don’t follow the evil politics with the lives of people. We have no link with the politics of killing and death. We would never do mean and violent politics,” Khaleda cleared her party position.
The BNP chief alleged those, who now grasped power, killed a dozen of bus passengers with gun powder in the name of movement in the past. They also danced on dead bodies after killing people with oars and sticks, she said adding they also compelled to defer SSC examinations up to three months.
Khaleda also alleged innocent people are being killed brutally in the similar style in the past. She claimed that 33 opposition leaders and activists have so per
been killed by the law enforcers since the 20-party’s transport blockade
began on January 6.
Moreover, the former prime minister claimed that hundreds of
opposition leaders and activists were injured and over 17,000 others
arrested by the law enforcers across the country during the period.
“We strongly condemn such attacks on innocent people. We express our
deep sympathy to those were killed and injured. We make our call again
to find out the real perpetrators of such heinous and brutal attacks and
mete out exemplary punishment to them,"
The BNP chief alleged that many people including women and
children, were killed while many others injured in petrol bomb attacks
on public vehicles during their blockade programme despite strong vigil
by the law enforcers.
Khaleda pointed out that it was a burning question as to
how miscreants threw petrol bombs at public vehicles and escape arrest
after committing the heinous crime despite presence of huge law
enforcers on the streets.
Shifting the blame on the opposition for the act of sabotage in a bid to to suppress the movement of the opposition party, alleged the BNP chief hoping such evil politics would not turn successful as the people of Bangladesh are not so fool.
Khaleda Zia said she is still in shock at the death of her younger son. She alleged before she overcomes her shock, she was cruelly treated.
The former prime Minister also added, “They are engaged to isolate me from the people and the leaders-activists by means of all sorts of pressures and creating insecure situation in a planned way.
“I want to make clear to all that I would not bow down to any illegal pressure or intimidation. I am ready to face any consequence,” BNP chairperson stated in the statement singed by BNP vice chairman Begum Selima Rahman.
