BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia sent Eid greetings to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today.
On behalf of BNP, a two member delegation comprising of assistant office secretaries Asadul Karim Shahin and Shamimur Rahman Shamim handed over the greetings card to AL’s Dhanmondi office.
Awami League assistant secretary Sikandar Ali received the greetings card this morning, BNP chairperson’s media wing staff, Syrul Kabir Khan said.
In the card, Khaleda addressed Hasina as the President of Awami League, not the Prime Minister. Following the January 5 elections in 2014, Khaleda has been addressing Hasina as the party chief only.
The two party leaders have not come face-to-face for a long time. On Pahela Baishakh, the first day of Bangla New Year, they exchanged greetings with cards as well.
