BNP`s Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. File PhotoBNP Chief Khaleda Zia’s life is in grave peril due to the government’s vendetta, said the party’s Senior Joint-Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
“She has been taken to prison without any release papers from the hospital,” he told the media at the party headquarters on Friday (Nov 9).
“Even the doctors on her medical board are not aware of her release. The release papers have been signed by an intern doctor,” the senior BNP leader claimed.
He reiterated that the sudden announcement of polls schedule with ongoing political tension is proof that the polls will be one-sided.
“The Election Commission had ample time in their hands to postpone the elections without breaking the law,” he said adding, “There is no sign of a level playing field ahead of the polls.”
Rizvi lashed out saying that BNP workers are being arrested indiscriminately so that they cannot take part in the Rajshahi rally.
Warning that the government is digging a hole for themselves, he said “Agree to the seven-point demand by Oikya Front. Hand over power to a neutral polls-time administration and ensure an all inclusive election with equal opportunities for all parties.”
