BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia will separately sit with her party’s policymakers and 20-party alliance leaders on Sunday and Monday to finalize their next course of action to force the government for arranging a fresh election under a non-party administration.
Both the meetings will take place at Khaleda’s Gulshan political office.
The BNP chairperson will hold a meeting with the party’s standing committee members on Sunday night, her press secretary Maruf Kamal Khan Sohel told UNB on Wednesday.
He said Khaleda will also hold a meeting with top leaders of the BNP-led 20-party alliance on Monday night.
Top leaders of the BNP and its alliance partners, including Khaleda, had issued threats at different Iftar parties during Ramadan that they would wage a strong movement after Eid.
On July 18, Khaleda also approved a 52-member convening committee of her party’s crucial Dhaka city unit, led by party standing committee member Abbas and Swechchhasebak Dal president Sohel, apparently to launch a vigorous movement in the capital this time.
Later, Khaleda went to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah where she met party senior vice chairman and her eldest son Tarique Rahman, who has been living in the UK since 2008.
Party sources said Khaleda and Tarique worked out the 20-prtys’ possible movement strategy during their stay in Saudi to force the government to concede to their demand for fresh polls.
Khaleda will elaborately discuss the movement plan with her party’s policymakers and alliance leaders to finalise it.
She will also discuss with the party policymakers and her alliance leaders the country’s overall political situation and give them direction to put the opposition leaders and activists at a war mood to make their upcoming movement a success.
Earlier on Tuesday night, Khaleda had a meeting with the new convening committee of Dhaka city unit BNP where she asked the party leaders to work together putting behind their conflicts and differences of opinion so that the unit can play a vital role in making their upcoming movement a success.
