Street movement soon for Khaleda’s release, warns BNP

PV Desk : BNP on Sunday warned that its leaders and activists will take to the streets with a short notice if their party chief Khaleda Zia is not released from jail before the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr.

Speaking at a press conference at the party’s Nayapaltan central office, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi also warned that the consequences will not be good if the government and the jail authorities do not take proper steps for the better medical treatment of Khaleda as she suffered a ‘mild stroke’.

“Take immediate steps for the release of our leader and ensure her better treatment before the Eid, or else, the nationalist forces will come down to the streets in their huge numbers taking a vow of a strong movement,” he said.

He also demanded the government allow the party chief to receive treatment at United Hospital immediately.
