Khaleda for fresh dialogue to resolve crisis

She also calls for installation of people’s govt thru’ fresh polls

New Age Online

BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Wednesday urged the government to take immediate steps for holding fresh dialogue to resolve the current political impasse and install a democratic government, UNB reported.
‘This is an illegal government and an illegal government doesn’t have any responsibility to people … it’s very dangerous to allow such a government to prolong,’ she said addressing a press conference at city’s Westin Hotel.
Khaleda said: ‘There’s no alternative to an election with the participation of all under a non-party government that will reflect the will of people. Otherwise, it’s not possible to restore peace and stability in the country. So, we ask the government to take an initiative in this regard.’
To create an environment for dialogue and compromise, she urged the government to release all the detained political leaders and activists of the BNP alliance and withdraw the ‘false’ cases filed against them, and reopen the closed political offices to reactivate political activities.
The BNP chief said the January-5 ‘flawed’ polls have proved that the BNP-led 18-party’s demand for the caretaker government to oversee the parliamentary elections was justified.
Khaleda said, ‘It (the election) has proved that the government snatched the democratic rights of people and this Election Commission is subservient to the government.’
The former premier assured that her party, if comes to power, will formulate a permanent framework of power transfer. ‘We would restore healthy politics through a consensus by removing confrontation,’ she told journalists.
In reply to a remark of prime minister Sheikh Hasina that BNP has lost all the hopes, Khaleda said, ‘We didn’t lost any hope as we’re with people rather it’s Awami League which has lost the hope being alienated from people.’
Reiterating that their movement will continue, Khaleda announced that rallies and processions will be held on January 20 across the country to thank people for boycotting the January 5 polls.
As part of the programme, a rally will also be held at Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital.
On January 29, demonstrations will be staged across the country with black flags.
Besides, Khaleda and her party senior leaders will visit some districts across the country in an effort to gear up their movement.
