The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has alleged that the government has resorted to a “deep-rooted conspiracy” with the life of its chairperson,Khaleda Zia, by denying her the right to receive treatment. 

They made the allegation at a press briefing at BNP's Naya Paltan central office on Wednesday, reports UNB. 

BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said: "Khaleda  Zia is still sick. The government has snatched her right to get necessary treatment. The government has indulged in a deep-rooted plot over her life."

He also alleged that the government is repressing Khaleda mentally by not allowing her relatives to meet her.

The BNP leader said that the lower court is delaying the hearing on Khaleda's bail petitions in different cases at the behest of the government.

"The government is applying all the ways to repress Begum Zia," he remarked. 

He also accused the government of harassing BNP leaders and activists through the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

"After harassing BNP leaders and activists by filing cases and attacking them by police across the country, now opposition leaders are being harassed by the Anti-Corruption Commission,"Rizvi said, referring to the filing of a case against BNP Standing Committee member Mirza Abbas and his wife, Afroza Abbas, by the ACC. 

He claimed that the ACC filed the case against Abbas and Afroza as they contested the 11th parliamentary election as BNP candidates, and took a strong stance in favour of BNP and democracy. 

The BNP leader said: "We would like to say that the ACC is working as a weapon to oppress the opposition."

He added that though ruling party leaders and activists 'plundered' thousands of crores of taka from financial institutions, including banks, the ACC has turned a blind eye to them.

Rizvi alleged that the ruling party men kept repressing and attacking BNP leaders and activists and setting fire to their houses at different parts of the country since the December 30 general election.

"People are passing their days amid deep worry due to the post-election violence. A tense situation has been prevailing all over the country due to the continuing acts of terror. A serious censorship has been imposed so that the media can't publish news on repressive acts," he further alleged.
