BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is going to sit with BNP standing committee members tonight to finalize her party’ s action programs to force the government for arranging a fresh election under a non-party administration.
The meeting is scheduled to start around 8:30pm at Khaleda’s Gulshan political office, her press secretary Maruf Kamal Khan Sohel told.
The last meeting of the party’ standing committee, the policymaking body, was held on May 10.
The BNP chairperson will hold another meeting with top leaders of the BNP-led 20-party alliance on Monday night.
Party sources said Khaleda at the two meetings 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.
The BNP chief 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 Arabia 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.
