18-party alliance launches one-point oust-govt movement

Cover Story

Amid the growing atrocities by the ruling party and its administration in Bangladesh against its political opponents, the BNP-led 18-party alliance on 6 March decided to launch a one-point oust-government movement. But, the alliance’s embattled partner Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami will unilaterally continue its movement seeking the release of its detained leaders facing war crimes trial. The decisions were taken at a meeting between BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and the top leaders of her party-led 18-party alliance.

The nearly 45-minute meeting that began around 9 pm was held at the BNP chief’s Gulshan office with Khaleda Zia in the chair. This was the first meeting of the opposition alliance since the initiation of Shahbagh Ganojagaran Mancha demanding the execution of all the war criminals. The last meeting of the alliance top leaders with Khaleda was held two months back on January 28.

The BNP chief will finalise the next course of action of the alliance after a meeting with her party’s standing committee members next week. She hinted at enforcing more shutdowns in the coming week. The former premier said the alliance will continue with tougher action programme until the government is ousted.
