He said people have been deprived of their minimum fundamental rights

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir asserted that Bangladesh has become a country exclusive of democracy after 49 years of independence.

He made the statement while talking to reporters after paying tribute at National Memorial in Savar, marking the 49th Victory Day on Monday.

The BNP senior leader said: "On this day, we were able to liberate our land."

"The main idea of independence is to ensure a democratic state system and a democratic society, but Bangladesh has become a country without democracy."

"Today, people have been deprived of their minimum fundamental rights, including voting and democratic rights,"he added.

"It is unfortunate that the man [former president Ziaur Rahman] who declared independence, his wife Khaleda Zia was captured by the Pakistani occupation forces and tortured."

He further mentioned: "That very Khaleda Zia has been kept in prison for months. The leader, who battled against autocracy for nine years and was elected prime minister three times by the general public, is now in jail for fighting in favor of democracy."

"In this day, we vow that we will liberate democracy and our leader Khaleda Zia, by uniting all people with the spirit of the Liberation War."
