BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged that the government is trying to kill their chairperson Khaleda Zia in jail by resorting to various tricks.
"The government is prolonging Khaleda Zia's stay in jail by creating obstacles to her release by resorting to various ploys. They (govt) are trying to interfere in the court and push her towards death in jail without treatment," said the BNP leader.
Speaking at a press conference at BNP chairperson's Gulshan office on Friday, he also said though Khaleda Zia deserves bail in the cases she was convicted, the government is depriving her of it.
"We think, the government is showing an inhuman attitude towards Khaleda by depriving her of her legal rights.  "It's also tantamount to violating the constitution," the BNP leader added.
Fakhrul said the government is also depriving Khaleda of her right to receiving treatment only to kill her inside jail.
He said their party wants the country's apex court to grant bail to Khaleda upholding her rights.    -UNB
