Dhaka, Mar 8 (Just News): Bangladesh Nationalist Party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged that the law enforcers are selectively arresting BNP’s organisers.
"Those who are organisers and leading the party are being arrested selectively," Fakhrul told a press conference at the party's Naya Paltan central office on Thursday.
The BNP secretary general said, "We have never seen such arrests in an independent country. We can compare it with Hitler's Gestapo, the German police force under Nazi. Or we can compare it with the dictators who carried out repression on the democratic activists."
BNP will stage demonstration at all thanas in the capital on Saturday protesting at law enforcers’ attack on its sit-in programme in front of the National Press Club on Thursday.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir announced the programme at the press conference.
“We are announcing a protest programme at all thanas of the capital on Saturday protesting at police attack on our peaceful sit-in programme,” said the BNP leader.
Fakhrul said they were observing their sit-in programme today, Thursday, in front of the National Press Club but law enforcers foiled it without any provocation.
