BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today vowed to restore the people's voting rights through tougher anti-government movement under the leadership of Khaleda Zia.
Asked whether BNP is going through difficult times, Fakhrul said, "Not only BNP, the people of Bangladesh are passing hard times right now as their voting rights have been snatched away."
