BNP does not support banning of any political party
Tough programmes in OctoberNew Age Online
The Bangladesh Nationalist Party on Friday said it never supports banning any political party, on the backdrop of the High Court verdict Thursday which declared illegal the registration of Jamaat-e-Islami, a key ally of BNP.
BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam addressing a protest rally said he would not say anything about the verdict of the High Court as it is a sub-judicial matter.
However, he categorically said BNP would never support banning of any political party.
He said politics should be dealt with politically.
Fakhrul said the government has started all sorts of activities to annihilate the opposition and hold a one-party election. ‘So the government has now started banning political parties to reach the desired goal’, he said.
Dhaka city BNP organized the rally at the auditorium of the National Press Club in protest against the killing of city BNP ward no 58 joint convenor Jasim Uddin. Jasim was killed at Lalbagh in the city by alleged terrorists on July 29.
Addressing another function on Friday in the city, BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed said tough programmes like non-stop hartal and road-rail blockade would be enforced in October to compel the government to hold the next general elections under a non-party neutral government.
