The voting rights of the country people will be restored through ousting the government, BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said today.
"The government has come to the power through a one-sided election," Fakhrul told reporters after placing wreaths at the grave of late president and BNP founder Ziaur Rahman at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar of the capital.
The leaders and activists of BNP and its front organisations led by party chief Khaleda Zia went to pay their homage to Rahman on the occasion of 78th birth anniversary of their party founder today.
"On this day, we vowed to restore the democracy," Fakhrul, who was accompanying BNP chairperson Khaleda, said.
Khaleda also offered fateha at Rahman's grave and took part in a milad-mahfil for the salvation of the departed soul.
