Senior Correspondent: BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged that the government is pushing BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia towards death in jail without treatment.
He said, “The government is prolonging Khaleda Zia’s stay in jail by creating obstacles to her release by resorting to various ploys. They (govt) are trying to interfere in the court and push her towards death in jail without treatment.”
He came up with the statement at a press conference at BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office on Friday.
Fakhrul also said though Khaleda Zia deserves bail in the cases she was convicted, the government is depriving her of it.
“We think the government is showing an inhuman attitude towards Khaleda Zia by depriving her of her legal rights. It’s also tantamount to violating the constitution,” the BNP leader added.
