BNP to stage demo on Sunday protesting arrest warrant against Khaleda
Bangladesh Nationalist Party, or BNP, will stage demonstration across the country, including in the capital, on Sunday in protest against the issuance of arrest warrant against its chairperson Khaleda Zia in the Zia Orphanage and Zia Charitable Trust graft cases. BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced the protest programme at a press conference at the party’s Nayapaltan headquarters on Thursday. He alleged that the warrant was issued as part of the government’s a blueprint.  “The move was taken with a political motive.” Rizvi said the government’s “vindictive” attitude has got exposed through the court order. “We strongly protest and condemn it.” He said their party leaders and activists would stage demonstrations in all metropolitan cities and district towns. The top BNP leader also demanded immediate withdrawal of the court order. Earlier in the day, Dhaka Special Court-5 issued the warrant to arrest the BNP chief in the cases as she failed to appear before it. Rizvi said their chairperson could not go to the court on security grounds as the left-leaning parties enforced an eight-hour countrywide hartal protesting the fresh power tariff hike. He said Khaleda’s counsel also filed a petition seeking adjournment of Thursday’s hearing due to the hartal. “Even, the lawyers mentioned in the petition that she wanted to appear before the court after the hartal hours. But the court issued the arrest warrant, rejecting the petition. The order is contrary to justice.” Rizvi said their party thinks the order was issued at the behest of the government.
