Khaleda, Tarique talk party issues

Star Report

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia had meetings with his elder son Tarique Rahman, also the party's second-in-command, in Saudi Arabia yesterday.

They talked about crucial issues, including the party's reforms and upcoming anti-government movement, in at least four closed-door meetings in Madina.

The BNP chief and the senior vice-chairman also discussed whether the party's acting secretary general, Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, will continue to hold the temporary position, said party sources.    It could not be known if they had reached any decision. 

Following an emotional reunion at Dubai International Airport after over three years, Khaleda, Tarique and his wife and daughter went to Madina on Sunday morning to perform Umrah as royal guests.

Khaleda's entourage is scheduled to leave for Jeddah today. Later, they will go to Makkah by road and perform Umrah there.

The BNP chairperson is expected to return home on July 26.
