Create a level playing field: Fakhrul
The Secretary General of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has urged the government to release all political prisoners and create a level playing field otherwise upcoming general election will not be fruitful.
It will not be accepted unless political prisoners including Khaleda Zia are released, he said this while addressing a rally in Rajshahi on Friday.
He also called upon supporters and activists to wage a movement to meet the demands of Jatiya Oikyafront.
Oikyafront, a new political alliance, was formed on October 13.
The alliance’s demands include: the dissolution of parliament; election observing by a non-partisan government; the release of political prisoners, including BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia; and the withdrawal of “false cases” against opposition activists.
