BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir suddenly left Dhaka for New York on Tuesday morning. His destination is the United Nations. He will raise BNP`s statement in the hearing on Bangladesh.
In 2013, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Oscar Fernandez-Taranco visited Bangladesh to inspect the pre-election political situation. He held frequent meetings with the political parties of Bangladesh and tried to compromise among them regarding the national elections. The UN tried to solve the crisis of internal political issues. But it failed to play any role in the 2014 elections. Nevertheless, BNP raised its issues to the UN hoping it would be able to play the role to resolve the crisis
However, BNP sources said that UN sent invitation letter to Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir only to take part in the hearing. But Tabith Mohammed Awal, son of BNP Vice President Abdul Awal Mintoo, accompanied him. Although he is a member of the executive committee of BNP, Tabith Awal is known to keep a distance from the politics of BNP. Many have raised questions on Tabith`s company to Mirza Fakhrul in this visit.
According to the sources, BNP sent Tabith Awal to guard Mirza Fakhrul. BNP`s International Affairs Secretary Humayun Kabir has left for New York from London. Tabith and Humayun Kabir, both are going to New York as Tarique Zia`s representatives. Because the recent activities of the BNP secretary general are going against the interests of Tarique and his followers. The Tarique supporters no longer trust Fakhrul. Therefore, Tabith and Humayun Kabir are going to New York to watch over Fakhrul and keep information of his daily activities.
