“BNP (actually) has failed to deliver politics for the betterment of common people, they only talks about the release of their chairperson,” the information minister said.
The information minister said, “We have witnessed BNP’s movement over the last 11 years where they had no programme for the people’s demand. But legal aspect is the mere way for release of Begum Zia.”
