We want to restore democracy through a successful movement. We want to ensure people’s voting rights," the BNP leader quoted BNP chairperson as saying.

It is reported that BNP chairperson is frustrated as a number of central leaders and some district level leaders are not taking to streets to strengthen movements.
Due to such attitude of central leaders, some leaders of districts and upazila level are maintaining relations with the leaders and activists of the ruling party in stead of waging movement.
