Gayeshwar urged the young generation to come forward to materialise the dream of freedom fighters by ‘restoring’ democracy in the country

BNP senior leader Gayeshwar Chandra Roy on Friday said their party is waiting for an atmosphere conducive to creating a mass uprising to turn Bangladesh into a democratic country by ousting the current government.

“BNP leaders are determined to achieve the target of their party. They don't even think whether they’ll embrace death or not in the way of reaching that target,” he said.

Speaking at a doa mahfil at the party’s Nayapaltan central office, he said: “They [BNP leaders] are just waiting for a scope and an atmosphere...we’re determined to materialise the 1971’s dream of establishing a democratic state by ensuring the fall of the current government through a mass uprising."

BNP arranged the program, marking the 56th birth anniversary of its acting chairman Tarique Rahman who has long been staying in London.

Gayeshwar, a BNP standing committee member, urged the young generation to come forward to materialise the dream of freedom fighters by ‘restoring’ democracy in the country.

"I would like to tell the youth that the coming days are yours. We had fought in 1971 at your age to build Bangladesh as per our dreams. But we still couldn't build it in the way we wanted at that time. We’re beside you in the fight to build a democratic Bangladesh. You just come with us, we’ll never leave you,” he said.

Tarique was born on November 20, 1965 in Bogra. On September 11, 2008, he went to London for treatment, and he has been living with his family there since then.

He has been working as acting chairman of BNP since his mother and party chairperson Khaleda Zia’s imprisonment in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on February 8, 2018.

BNP did not take up any program, expect the doa mahfil, to celebrate Tarique’s birthday.

Gayeshwar, however, said Tarique himself asked the party not to work out any program and cut any cake on his birthday. “He instructed us only to pray for him and provide the poor with some assistance and relief materials on the occasion. He’s forbidden us, but he can’t control our emotions and at least 10,000 cakes will be cut today [Friday]. Because the reality sometimes gets defeated to emotions.”

A munajat was offered seeking long-life and wellbeing of the BNP acting chairman.

Later, Gayeshwar and other party senior leaders cut three cakes, weighing 56 pounds each, at the BNP office, celebrating the birthday of their acting chairman.

Earlier in the day, Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal leaders also cut a cake, marking the day.

BNP’s different associate bodies took up various programs, including distributing food among the destitute on the occasion.
