Detained former premier and BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia refused to become a voter as the government what she said detained her “illegally”.
Emerging from the sub-jail yesterday, her lawyer Ahmed Azam Khan told reporters that Khaleda Zia said the government detained her illegally and so she wouldn't become a voter in protest.
Jail authorities had gone to the sub-jail with voter registration forms twice for making her voter, but she refused to register.
Another former prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, also detained in another sub-jail nearby, has become voter from Dhanmondi area.
Ahmed Azam said the BNP chairperson is concerned over price hike of essentials and termed it a “great crisis” for the nation.
The family counsel of Khaleda Zia said she urged the caretaker government to send abroad her two detained sons for treatment.
