BNP senior leader Gayeshwar Chandra Roy on Friday claimed that their Chairperson Khaleda Zia through her statements in a special court here showed a comfortable and safe exit for Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
“Many people and foreign diplomats now often say a comfortable and safe exit for the present government or Sheikh Hasina should be created for quitting power. Our leader (Khaleda) in her statements in the court yesterday (Thursday) gave a clear indication about it,” he said.
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader further said, “She (Khaleda) said she has forgiven Sheikh Hasina. Through it, Khaleda Zia has already showed an exit route for Sheikh Hasina.”
Jatiyatabadi Sangrami Dal arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club, marking the ‘National Revolution and Solidarity Day’.
While giving her self-defence statement in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case before the makeshift court of Special Judge-5 at Bakshibazar, Khaleda on Thursday said she would not be vindictive against her archrival Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
She also said she personally forgave Hasina though she constantly makes indecent remarks about Zia and his other family members and shows her hostile attitude towards them.
Gayeshwar said the BNP chief though her comments said she would not show indecent manner to anybody and would not resort to any politics of vengeance, particularly against Hasina. “Because, we’re fighting for democracy and it’ll be our great revenge on Awami League if we can restore democracy. From this feeling, she said she won’t adopt the politics of vengeance.”
The BNP leader said Hasina fears of reprisal as she evicted Khaleda from her house, harassed her in many ways and carried out repressive acts against lakhs of BNP leaders and activists. “She (Hasina) is not considering her future way comfortable as the load of her misdeeds has got very heavier.”
Gayeshwar urged the Prime Minister to believe Khaleda’s statements and practise democracy together to materialise the spirit of the Liberation War.
