Designers to pay heavily, says Hannan Shah
BNP chairperson's Adviser Brig Gen (retd) Hannan Shah yesterday said they will have to pay heavily who have designed the so-called 'minus-two formula'.
“We will compel the designers to explain it (minus-two formula) after forming the government through an election,” he said while addressing a discussion meeting in the city.
The meeting was organised by Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal, the youth front of BNP, with its acting president Mian Mohammad Selim in the chair.
Urging the party leaders and workers to get ready for a movement, Hannan Shah said after the return of the party secretary general from abroad they will take a final decision about what to be done by the party men in this regard.
“We will give you call soon and you will have to implement the party decision,” he told the party men.
Hannan Shah said people are not safe under the present government and they might lose their patience.
“So the government should handover power as soon as possible through holding an acceptable election,” he added.
He urged the party leaders across the country to hold special prayers at Masjid and Mandir on Friday for the release and welfare of Khaleda Zia
Party leaders Goyeswer Chandra Ray, Mohammad Shahjahan, Rizvi Ahmed, Syed Mehedi Ahmed Rumi, Habib un Nabi Sohel, Shafiul Bari Babu, Shirin Sultana and Nasiruddin Asim also spoke on the occasion.
Earlier at a press briefing at Khandaker Delwar's Nam flat, Rizvi Ahmed, acting office secretary of the party, said the party will announce programmes for the release of party leaders including the chairperson after the return of the secretary general.
Protesting the case filed against Tarique Rahman, his wife and mother-in-law, he said after having failed to implement minus-two formula, motivated cases are being filed to eliminate the family members of Khaleda Zia from the politics.
“But the members of Zia family are ready to sacrifice their lives for democracy and the country,” he added.
