BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has started staging a drama before the people of the country as the Dhaka and Chittagong city polls approach, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said yesterday.
Speaking at a party meeting on the re-election at Magura-1 constituency in Gonobhaban last night, Hasina, also president of the Awami League, said: “Khaleda is the mastermind behind all those attacks that killed so many people. How is she going to people to seek votes when she has innocent blood on her hands?”
She urged Khaleda to stop such drama and work to ensure a level-playing field for all candidates.
The premier also criticised BNP’s nationwide dawn-to-dusk hartal tomorrow in protest of the attack on Khaleda’s
motorcade at Karwan Bazar in Dhaka. “Her security personnel opened fire without any reason.”
Sources at the meeting said Awami League leaders discussed the country’s current situation, the upcoming city polls of Dhaka and Chittagong, and issues of the next parliament session.
Sources at the 14-party alliance said the alliance leaders would held a meeting at Hasina’s political office in Dhanmondi, Dhaka tomorrow, where the likely topics of discussion are programmes to resist BNP’s nationwide hartal and Khaleda Zia’s moves for city polls campaign.
Earlier, the ruling party had decided restricting the BNP chief so that she could not take part in the campaign of the BNP-backed mayoral candidates.
