Staff Reporter :
BNP Standing Committee Member Selima Rahman on Friday said that the government had designed a plan to kill their seriously ill Chairperson Khaleda Zia slowly in jail depriving her of proper medical treatment.
She said it at a human chain programme arranged by Jatiyatabadi Sangrami Dal in front of the Jatiya Press Club, to voice for Khaleda's unconditional release.
Selima Rahman said, "Our leader Khaleda Zia has been kept in jail by convicting her in manufactured cases. All her petitions for bail get no positive  response," said the BNP leader at human-chain programme.
 "We're afraid of a plan to kill our leader (Khaleda) slowly. She is very sick, but not getting proper treatment. The government is obstructing her release on bail."
She urged their party leaders and activists to get ready for taking to the streets braving all the obstacles and repressive acts to have Khaleda freed from jail.
Speaking at another human-chain programme, BNP Standing Committee Member Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury said,
it will not be possible to have Khaleda freed from jail through the legal battle. We need a strong street movement.
He has also said it will not be possible to restore democracy in the country keeping Khaleda Zia in prison.
Diploma Engineers' Association organised the programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club, demanding the release of Khaleda.
The BNP leader alleged that the current 'unelected' government will not be able to free the country from corruption since it itself is surrounded by corrupt elements. "We would like to say that corruption can't be smashed by 10-20 drives, but by a popular government," she said.
