Fakhrul smells PM's influence on Khaleda cases
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Wednesday said he is smelling Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's influence on verdicts of cases against Khaleda Zia that are under trial.
"The Prime Minister's remarks reveal what verdict of corruption cases against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia will be delivered," Fakhrul said at a discussion organised by Jatiyatabadi Sangiskritik Jote marking death
anniversary of Chashi Nazrul Islam at an auditorium in the capital.
"The cases are under trial but the Prime Minister has already announced the verdict of the cases. Is there any necessity to declare verdict by judges," he said.
It will not be possible to stop people from protesting misdeeds of the government by influencing on verdict, the BNP leader added.
Welcoming the President's initiative to form Election Commission, Fakhrul said, "Future of the country and the Election Commission are dependent on what President will do finally."
He said, "BNP wants to find out instigators of the militants too. But the accused militants are being killed without any investigation and trial as the ruling Awami League fears of exposing real faces."
Terming the army-backed 1/11 government as illegal, Fakhrul said, "The day was restoration of an illegal government by stepping down a constitutional government."
"And the main target of the government was to de-politicisation in the country," he added.
