The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has warned that tougher programmes including hartal would announced if the government does not step down and arrange a peaceful poll accepting mass demand.
BNP joint secretary general Salahuddin Ahmed in a statement on Thursday issued the warning.
“We would be compelled to give tougher programmes including hartal from March 1 if the government refused to accept the mass demand and remains stick to its stance,” threatened Salahuddin in the statement.
He pointed out that all autocratic regimes, in past, failed to remain in power bypassing the mass people’s demand and it is history.
The illegal throne of present ruling Awami League would break away in pieces in the movement of the people, Salahuddin said adding the victory of the people is imminent.
