BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today termed the government as “fascist” and called upon the party men to be united to go for a mass upsurge, restoring democracy in the country.
“We will go for a mass upsurge to restore democracy and to ensure release of Khaleda Zia and thus we are trying to unite people,” Fakhrul said this while addressing a programme at the Supreme Court auditorium in Dhaka this noon.
Claiming that “fascism” does not sustain forever, Fakhrul said, “Fascism is on and there is nothing except a person in the country. So, we will have to be united forgetting all difference in us.”
About BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s release from jail, he said many accused like ministers and lawmakers in similar cases had earlier been granted bail while Khaleda Zia was being denied.
The BNP leader said people want ouster of the ruling quarter right now as they are suffering immensely due to the price hike of the daily commodities.
