AL's journey for 'change' started thru' killing
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia yesterday came down heavily on new Awami League (AL)-led government, saying that it has started its journey towards “change” through killing, snatching and criminal activities across the country.
The former premier made the allegations at a time when her political archrival Awami League President Sheikh Hasina and her cabinet took oath and formed government yesterday.
“You're observing what is happening across the country. Does it mean change? Do people want it?” Khaleda made the remarks after visiting the bereaved family members of Nazrul Islam, a leader of Jatiyatabadi Swechchhasebak Dal, who was killed in the city's Bijoynagar area on Monday.
Unidentified assailants shot dead Nazrul at around 3:30 pm.
The BNP chief reached the Bijoynagar residence of slain Nazrul at about 7:00pm, talked to his bereaved family members and consoled them.
Khaleda, who didn't attend the oath taking ceremony of Sheikh Hasina and her cabinet, demanded immediate arrest of the culprits involved in the killing.
