Terming democracy as the main spirit of country's independence, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said that democracy is absent in the country.
Fakhrul made the comment on Saturday at the first meeting of its central committee formed to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Bangladesh's Independence.
He claimed that existence of independence is endangered now. "The government is continuing its oppression on masses,” said Fakhrul.
The BNP secretary general asked his party men to take all steps for making a successful celebration of Golden Jubilee of the Independence.
"…Ziaur Rahman had initiated the Liberation War (in 1971) by proclaiming the independence of the country. But the history of independence is now being distorted. We’ve to tell the new generation about that distorted history,” he said.
The BNP leader said their party must seize the opportunity to reach out to the new generation with the right history and information of the Liberation War through various discussions, publications and documentation.
The meeting, held with BNP standing committee member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain in the chair, elaborately discussed the strategies and worked out various programmes to celebrate the golden jubilee throughout the year.
It also discussed the formation of a steering committee and various sub-committees on different matters, including seminar-symposium, management, office, publicity, cultural and media, to celebrate the mega event.
