Addressing a huge public meeting here, he also said that there will be no elections in Bangladesh until Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina steps down, handing over power to a non-party caretaker government.

“This regime has not harmed anything. Now we do not get justice. They file false, fabricated and fabricated cases against us and blame us. All our senior leaders are facing 10-60 cases,” said the BNP leader.

Fakhrul said the government is now trying to speed up the trial process of “false” cases against BNP leaders. “It means that they (the government) want to easily remove obstacles to elections, like when our leader Khaleda Zia was put in jail after being convicted of false cases.”

However, he warned that the people of the country would not allow the government to hold more unbalanced national elections this time.

As part of the BNP’s divisional programme, the party’s Cumilla city unit arranged a rally at the Cumilla Town Hall grounds.

Thousands of leaders and workers of BNP and its sister bodies attended the rally in Kumilla as there was no transport strike this time.

The rally venue was packed with opposition leaders and workers since morning as they gathered there from various sub-districts of Kumilla and its adjoining districts, including Brahmanbaria and Chandpur.

Unlike the party’s previous such rallies in other divisions, BNP leaders and followers faced less hassle in attending the event in Kamilla as no transport strike has been enforced here.

Kumilla was the 8th rally of the BNP at the divisional level after 7 others in Chattogram, Mymensingh, Khulna, Rangpur, Barishal, Faridpur and Sylhet.

BNP workers were seen arriving at the rally site in processions raising various anti-government slogans since morning.

Organizers said the rally was to condemn the rise in prices of daily essential commodities and fuel, to ensure the freedom of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia after five people from the party were killed in previous police crackdowns in Bhola, Narayanganj, Munshiganj, Brahmanbaria and Jashore. Death had happened.

The BNP has long been demanding that the next general election be held under a caretaker government, not a political government – ​​a demand swiftly rejected by the ruling Awami League as the constitution does not allow this to happen.
