Khaleda Zia has vowed to stage the world's biggest anti-government popular uprising to find a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
"We'll teach a lesson to this government…spending over a hundred crore taka for singing the national anthem will not be enough to save it," the chairperson of Bangladesh Nationalist Party told a conference of journalists on Saturday.
Her declaration came days after Bangladesh marked this year's Independence Day on March 26 singing the national anthem by more than 300,000 people in a bid to make a world record.
Khaleda Zia alleged that people were paid money to sing the national anthem at the spectacular event at National Parade Ground in the city.
She was addressing the biennial conference of a faction of Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFJU) at the Jatiya Press Club. Khaleda said, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's government will be given a "farewell through a peoples' uprising."
"It will be a real farewell when people will flood the streets, and that will make an entry into the Guinness Book."
Khaleda accused the Awami League of misleading the people with wrong information about the Liberation War of 1971. "Awami League only speaks about the spirit of the Liberation War.  They act like this because they did not take part in the war or witness it," she said.
"AL men who claim to be freedom fighters only crossed the border (into India), as refugees," she claimed.
The BNP chief noted that they will announce fresh anti-government programmes after the upazila elections are over. Terming the government illegal Khaleda said the parliament also does not exist today as it has an opposition only loyal to government.
She also urged the Jatiya Party (JP) leader Rowshan Ershad to resign as the leader of the opposition in the parliament. Khaleda Zia said BNP was under pressure too to participate in the Jan. 5 election, but it did not give in for greater public interest.
Chaired by BFUJ president Ruhul Amin Gazi, the meeting was also addressed by its secretary general Sawkat Mahmud and Jatiya Press Club president Kamal Uddin Shabuj.
