In the exhibition, he also alleged that his party’s chairperson have been imprisoned unjustly too.

“Khaleda Zia is an icon of democracy. If she is freed from the jail, the government will perish. They will (Awami League led government) will be swept away by the waves of the people. They have kept Khaleda Zia impression for this reason. But they won’t be able to keep her locked; people will force them to free her” Fakhrul added.
