BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia today alleged that the country has been turned into a “police state”.
Blaming police for their recent alleged activities, Khaleda said, “The whole country is running under a police-leadership. They are arresting people as they wish and putting them in crossfire.”
She said that there is no scope to protest the “repression by police”. “If anybody does so, s/he has to face imprisonment and oppression,” she added.
Raising a question about the country’s present situation, Khaleda said, “People are being killed by police inside the country while others are being killed in the border by the security force of other country.”
She also alleged that the government is “hatching conspiracy” to hand over the country to others in the name of governing the state.
“Only the countrymen can stop this conspiracy,” Khaleda, also the chief of the BNP-led 20-party alliance, said while speaking at an Iftar party at the Ladies Club in Dhaka.
She however did not mention anything about the conspiracy.
