The BNP chairperson has been in jail since February 8

The BNP-led 20-Party Alliance says the upcoming general election will not be acceptable unless former prime minister Khaleda Zia is released from jail.

“Either winning the election or waging a political movement are the only ways to free her,” alliance coordinator Oli Ahmed told a program of freedom fighters in Dhaka on Saturday.

BNP Chairperson Khaleda has been in prison since February 8 after a court jailed her for five years in a corruption case. She was convicted in another corruption case in October.

The BNP claims the cases are politically motivated and designed to prevent the former prime minister from contesting in the December 30 election. Her release has been one of the key demands of the BNP-led alliance.

“The election will be unacceptable since Khaleda Zia is in jail. We will continue our campaign to press for our seven-point demands,” Nagarik Oikay Convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna said at Saturday’s program.
