“When it is a matter of national interest and the interest of people, the interest of one person, or group or family is not important.”
The Oikya Front chief added:“Getting all demands fulfilled from a single dialogue was not rational,as it is a continuous process. If necessary, we will hold talks again.”
Discussing the historic Jail Killing Day, he said:“The killings were also an attack on the unity of the countrymen,and the objective of such attack was to bring the country back to pre-liberation era.
“In the last 47 years of liberation, we have faced many attacks.But when strength is generated through national unity, such attacks cannot defeat us. The perpetrators of the jail killing were definitely the enemies of independence.”
