BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has aired a doubt whether a ‘non-political element’ is running the country.
“I think no political party is now running the country. It’s now run by other element,” he said.
Talking to reporters at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office on Thursday, he also said a political party which had fought for a long time for democracy cannot annihilate it with its own hand the way it is now being done.
Fakhrul alleged that the government has failed to ensure the minimum rights of Khaleda Zia in jail.
“This is unprecedented in any civilized and democratic country.”
He also said the way the government is obstructing their ailing chairperson’s physicians from visiting her in the jail that manifests the government is unwilling to allow her to receive proper treatment.
