BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Thursday issued what she termed ‘red alert’ for the opposition leaders and activists, urging them to wage an anti-government movement.
Khaleda, also the leader of 19-party alliance, said she would take to the streets along with the countrymen to save democracy and to ensure people’s safety.
She made the remarks this afternoon while addressing a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital organised by Jatiyatabadi Sramik Dal, the labour wing of BNP, marking the May Day.
Highlighting the killings of seven abducted people in Narayanganj, Khaleda blamed the Awami League-led alliance for “killing, forced disappearance, abduction and looting in different parts of the country”.
She also urged the opposition men to capture those who would come to abduct anyone.
“Don’t be afraid of anyone, even if they are members of police or Rab (Rapid Action Battalion) and try to abduct or kill you,” Khaleda added.
