‘Shun infighting first’
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday urged the party leaders and activists to put behind intra-party conflicts first before launching a movement to oust the current government.
"I would like to clearly say Awami League won't be able to hang onto power as people will ensure their fall through a strong movement for their misdeeds and injustice," he said.
Speaking at a virtual discussion, the BNP leader said, "Let's quickly reorganise ourselves by resolving misunderstandings and divisions among us. We also must unite people..."
Gazipur district and city units of BNP arranged the programme marking the 40th death anniversary of party founder Ziaur Rahman.
Fakhrul called upon BNP leaders and workers to get ready for restoring democracy and establishing a pro-people government by ensuring a credible national election under a non-party administration and the neutral Election Commission through a tough struggle.
He said they will also wage a movement to completely free party chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail.
Stating that the country has been going through a critical juncture, he said BNP must play a pivotal role in overcoming it. "Amid the current political crisis, we must stand firmly and turn around to change the situation."
