BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday forewarned that the government will have to face a strong movement if it does not free ailing chairperson Khaleda Zia and other state prisoners immediately.

“We’ve taken a vow to intensify our movement to free our leader Khaleda Zia and our all other arrested leaders and activists. We’ll surely be able to wage the movement,” he said.

The BNP leader came up with the forewarning while talking to reporters after placing a wreath at BNP founder Ziaur Rahman’s grave together with party joint secretary general Habibun Nabi Khan Sohel who was recently released from jail.

Mirza Fakhrul urged the government to free Khaleda Zia and all other state prisoners immediately withdrawing the false cases filed against them to avert the street agitation.

Describing the current parliament as illegal, the BNP secretary general also called upon the government to hold a fresh election under a neutral government to from it with people’s mandate.

He alleged that though their chairperson Khaleda Zia is seriously ill, she is not getting necessary treatment at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).

“She has been kept in jail unfairly for over 18 months in false cases. She's now seriously sick, but doesn’t get proper treatment,” he said.
