BNP on Wednesday alleged that the government has resorted to a "deep-rooted conspiracy" over the life of the party Chairperson Khaleda Zia by snatching her right to receive treatment.
"Khaleda Zia is still sick. But the government has snatched her right to get necessary treatment. The government has indulged in a deep-rooted plot over her life," alleged BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi while speaking at a press briefing at the party central office at Nayapaltan in the capital.
The BNP leader also said the lower court is delaying the hearing on bail petitions of Khaleda in different cases at the behest of the government.
"The government is applying all the ways to repress Begum Zia," Rizvi alleged.
He also accused the government of harassing BNP leaders and activists through the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Referring to filing of a case against BNP Standing Committee member Mirza Abbas and his wife Afroza Abbas by the ACC, Rizvi said, "After harassing BNP leaders and activists by filing cases and attacking them by police across the country, now opposition leaders are being harassed by the Anti-Corruption Commission."
He claimed that the ACC filed the case against Abbas and Afroza as they contested the 11th parliamentary election as BNP candidates, and took a strong stance in favour of BNP and democracy.
