'Liberation war, mass upheaval should be base of nat'l charter'
Leaders of Bangladesh Samajtantrik Dal (BSD) at a meeting yesterday said national unity created during the liberation war and mass upheaval in '90 should be the base of the national charter proposed by the chief adviser (CA) in his address to the nation, says a press release.
The CA's call for consensus among political parties in some issues with a view to forming the national charter are unnecessary, they added.
The meeting was presided over by BSD President Kahlekuzzaman at Shaheed Tajul Auditorium of Moni Singh-Farhad Trust Bhaban at Paltan in the city.
They said the country got its constitution in '72 based on the liberation war that reflects the aspirations of people of all walks of life.
Secular politics and democracy were the ideology of the liberation war. People were united behind those ideals and those should be the bases of the proposed national charter, they added.
Party leaders Mubinul Haider Chowdhury, Abdullah Sarkar and Bazlur Rahsid Firoz also spoke.
