Staff Reporter : BNP on Thursday alleged that party Chairperson Khaleda Zia's bail rejection by the High Court exposed the government's inhuman policy. The party has called a demonstration across the country on Saturday protesting the bail rejection by the court. BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Â Rizvi announced the programme at a press conference at the party's Nayapaltan central office yesterday afternoon. Rizvi said, "We will hold the demonstration in all district towns and divisional cities, including Dhaka city, on Saturday."Â Besides, a rally will be organised in front of the party central office at Nayapaltan at around 2:00pm on the same day, he said. A High Court bench of Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice AKM Zahirul Huq Thursday afternoon turned down the bail petition filed by Khaleda Zia in the Zia Charitable Trust case. In its observation, the court said it is possible for the medical board to provide treatment to Khaleda Zia. "If she wants, the medical board will start the treatment anytime soon. If required, the number of the seven-member board could be increased," the court added. Rizvi said, "The government's cruel policy has exposed through the rejection of bail petition of Khaleda Zia by the High Court. Like the kidnappers, the government has kept Khaleda Zia in jail unlawfully violating her legal rights for bail." He alleged that the court turned down BNP chairperson's bail petition at the 'behest' of the government. "I, on behalf of BNP strongly condemn and protest it." The BNP leader also demanded the government to release Khaleda Zia immediately from jail.
