Yesterday (Sunday) on the occasion of Pahela Boishakh, BNP leaders including Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Gayeshwar Chandra Roy and Nazrul Islam went to visit BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia. They inquired about her physical condition and informed her about the ongoing programs of the party. But according to the witnesses Begum Zia was very rude to them.
Begum Zia said that in this circumstance the members will die fighting among themselves. She complains about their apathy to get her released from jail.
Addressing Gayeshwar Begum Zia asked why he has criticized his own party in stead of Awami League.
Besides, she asked Mirza Fakhrul about his relation with Awami League. However, she remained silent to Nazrul Islam Khan. Then she said that she is gradually moving towards death. Her legs are paralyzed and at present she cannot move her hand. She is not even able to eat properly.
At that time BNP leaders assured that they are holding a movement soon demanding her (Khaleda Zia’s) release. Begum Zia mocks at them and showed her disbelief on them.
Begum Zia showed no interest in discussing about the party movements or anything like that in the one-hour meeting. She repulsed them by reproaching.
