PV Desk : Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Saturday reiterated that there is no way of freeing BNP chief Begum Khaleda Zia through movement or street campaigns, saying victory in legal way could be the only path to release her from jail.

“BNP is virtually showing disrespect to the law and the court as well by repeatedly raising demand to the government for releasing Begum Zia,” he said, addressing a meeting at an auditorium of Jatiya Press Club here.

Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote (BSJ) organized the meeting marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the ‘Mubib Borsho’ with BSJ president and eminent actress Sarah Begum Kabori in the chair.

Awami League Office Secretary and Prime Minister’s Special Assistance Barrister Biplob Barua addressed the discussion as the key speaker while BSJ general secretary Arun Sarker Rana conducted it.
