Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Zafrullah Chowdhury on Tuesday told the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) that the people of the country were expecting the party to act.
"Bangladesh’s democracy and the country itself have been snatched away. The people are expecting steps from your party (BNP)," he said, addressing the party’s vice-chairman Shamsuzzaman Dudu.
Zafrullah was speaking at a programme marking the homecoming day of Mawlana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani, organised by Bhasani Anusari Parishad, at National Press Club in the capital.
"Come out on the streets," he said.
Jatiya Party’s former minister and secretary general Mostafa Jamal Haider said democracy was "destroyed" through the "farcical 30 December elections."
Shamsuzzaman Dudu, Jahangirnagar University former vice chancellor Jasim Uddin Ahmed, JU teacher professor Dilara Chowdhury also spoke, among others, at the programme.
