Staff Reporter  :
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday said that the Awami League government would not get any way to flee while the people start their utmost agitation.
"People know who fled the country after the political changeover during 1/11. The Prime Minister said in Rajshahi on Sunday that Awami League never flees. But the people had not forget that who fled the country after being arrested during that (1/11) caretaker government," Mirza Fakhrul said.
The BNP leader also said their party Chairperson Khaleda Zia did not leave the country at that time.
"Begum Khaleda Zia clearly said I have no place abroad. This is my country. I was born here… Even if I die, I will die here… So, everyone knows who escaped the country where and how," Mirza Fakhrul said while launching the march programme of their party's Dhaka South City unit - towards Jurain from Jatrabari.
The BNP leader said their march is a victory march of democracy and to get back people's rights.
He asked the party leaders and activists to hold programme peacefully, as they did with all other previous programmes.
Mirza Fakhrul asked the ruling party not to consider BNP's peaceful programmes as its weakness. A strong resistance will be put up if our programme is obstructed, he warned.
The BNP leader also said they will achieve the final victory by ousting the current government through peaceful programmes with the involvement of the mass people.
The BNP Secretary General said the ruling party leaders are now making unguarded remarks as they have lost the ground beneath their feet after becoming isolated from people.
He blamed the ruling party for its ill-efforts to ensure the victory of Advocate Abdus Sattar - a former MP and sacked BNP leader - in the Brahmanbaria-2 constituency by-polls, Mirza Fakhrul has said no fair election can be held as long as Awami League is in power.
As part of BNP's four-day programme, leaders and activists of its Dhaka South City unit marched towards the capital's Jurain rail gate area from Jatrabari to press home their 10-point demand, including holding the next general election under a non-party caretaker government.
Fakhrul formally inaugurated the programme in front of Jatrabari Ideal School around 2:50 pm.
It was the second such programme of BNP as the leaders and activists of the party's Dhaka North City unit marched from Badda to Malibagh in the capital on Saturday.
Thousands of leaders and activists of BNP and its associate bodies joined the programme, carrying banners, national, party and white flags, festoons and portraits of the party's top leaders.
Besides, a huge number of law enforcers have been deployed to maintain law and order and fend off any untoward incidents.
