    Assuring of a post-Eid peaceful movement, BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Wednesday warned that they will come up with a counter reply if the government tries to block their protest programme. Addressing an Iftar party, she also said a fresh convening committee of her party’s Dhaka City unit will be declared very soon in a bid to intensify the movement. The Dhaka City BNP unit arranged the Iftar party on the premises of parliament’s LD Hall. “BNP doesn’t believe in torch-and-burn politics. Awami League men do this. Our movement after Eid will be peaceful and democratic one to force the government to hold a fresh election,” the BNP chief said. She further said, “We’ve heard Awami League will take to the streets to counter us. I want to clearly say we’ll give a counter reply if you (govt) try to create obstacles to our movement with police and armed ruling party cadres. The consequence will also be not good.” Khaleda, also a former Prime Minister, claimed the country’s people are now united to oust the current regime. Assuring of creating a new and positive trend in the country’s politics in the days to come, she urged all political parties to get united under a single platform against this administration. “You (parties) can’t keep mum in this sordid state of the country. It’s the right time to register protest and put up a resistance.” Voicing her dissatisfaction over the role of Dhaka city BNP in the movement before the January-5 election, Khaleda said there had been movement all over the country. “There’s no chance to deny there were some faults in the movement strategy in Dhaka.” She said a convening committee of the Dhaka City unit will be announced soon to overcome the previous mistakes. The convening committee will form the committee of all the city units and wards through a council. The BNP chief alleged that the government is not willing to resolve the ongoing political crisis through talks. “Awami League wants to cling to power till the everlasting day. They may be able to prolong their power for some time, but must go. They’ll be ousted in such a way people won’t feel sorry for them, rather will thank Allah.” Khaleda was also critical of the Election Commission saying it has become the government’s puppet institution. “No fair election is possible without the reconstitution of the commission.” Senior leaders of BNP and its alliance partners, civil society members and leaders of pro-BNP professional bodies joined the Iftar party.
