BNP senior vice chairman Selima Rahman on Sunday claimed that their party chairperson Khaleda Zia has been ignoring heavy food for the last five days being upset over the 'disruption of food supply' to her office for party leaders, office staff and security personnel.
Talking to reporters in front of the main gate of the office, Selima said Khaleda Zia is not taking heavy food as she cannot do that leaving others in her office unfed.
She said the BNP chief is not showing interest in taking anything as food supply for all others staying inside the office has been stopped by the law enforcers. "We're convincing her to take juice and fruits.  She's not taking heavy food showing her sympathy to the unfed party leaders, office staff and others."
Selima, who along with Mohila Dal general secretary Shirin Sultana has been staying with the BNP chief in her office since January-3, also alleged that the government is spreading lies over food supply to the BNP chief's Gulshan office.
Meanwhile, food and fresh water supply to the BNP chairperson's office for her party leaders, office staff and security personnel remained disrupted for the fifth consecutive day on Sunday due to reported obstruction by law enforcers.
A plainclothes police deployed in front of the office blocked a rickshaw as it arrived there with 30 packets of cooked food and bottled water around 2:15pm on Sunday as they have been doing it since Wednesday night.
Being instructed by the policeman to turn back immediately, the rickshaw-puller left the area keeping the food and water on the footpath in front of the office.
Asked the reason for blocking the food supply to the Khaleda's office, the policeman suggested reporters to talk to his senior officials to have their comments about it.
At one stage, Selima Rahman appeared in front of the main gate of the office and asked the law enforcers who are dictating them to stop food supply to the office. "Is it a jail? Even, foods are served in jails and the condemned criminals also get food."
Venting her anger, the BNP leader said, "The state minister for home and the IGP are saying there has been no obstruction to food supply, but policemen are blocking our food supply everyday. I want to know at whose behest the police are doing this!"
She said, most people inside the office have remained almost unfed due to police obstruction on food supply to it.
Selima said, they have been taking dry food since Wednesday night as it is not possible to cook inside the office for so many people.
The law enforcers on Wednesday night suddenly stopped the supply of food and fresh water to Khaleda's Gulshan office by turning away a van carrying cooked food and bottled water.
The law forcers, however, are not resisting the relatives of Khaleda from supplying cooked food for her.
Khaleda Zia has been staying in the office along with nearly 50 people, including some BNP leaders, office staff and her personal security personnel since January 3.
