Govt will responsible if anything happens to Khaleda Zia : Rizvi
Shafiqul Islam (Jami)
The government will be responsible if anything happens to BNP chairperson and former Prime Minister Begum Khaleda Zia. BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has even warned the ruling party that the outcome of the government will be ‘terrible’. In a prayer meeting on Sunday afternoon, he said, “I am telling the government again – there is still time, release Khaleda Zia.”
Let her go abroad for better treatment. You’ve got a lot going on. Those who are doing wrong, Allah leaves them many ropes firstly. Then when he pulls the rope, you will fall down, but many will be injured. Addressing the government, Rizvi said, “I see the kind of commitment of the nationalist forces. If anything happens to the leader of Deshnetri, you (the government) will not be able to stand for a moment in this Bangladesh.”
The prayer mahfil was organized by the Jatiyatabadi Sechchasebakdal on the ground floor of the BNP central office in Naya Paltan to wish Khaleda Zia well.
Former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia has been suffering from various complications including arthritis, diabetes, kidney, lung and eye problems for many years. She was admitted to the CCU of Evercare Hospital in Bashundhara from November 13. Her family has appealed to the government to take her abroad for treatment. But the government says that since Khaleda Zia has been temporarily released on parole, she has no chance to go abroad. If he goes back to jail and applies, the government may consider it.
Calling the present government ‘anti-people’, Rizvi said at the prayer meeting that no one would stand by them if they were ousted. You don’t realize your lords are sheltering you. “After the arrest of Khaleda Zia, we said that this government could do slow poisoning to her,” he said. That is why you are not releasing her today. Not allowing advanced treatment abroad.
Meanwhile, Ruhul Kabir Rizvi distributed food among the poor in the capital yesterday afternoon to cure Khaleda Zia.
