Stating that an impossible thing can be made possible through unity, Jatiya Oikyafront convener Dr Kamal Hossain on Sunday urged people to launch a united movement to ‘restore’ democracy in the country, reports UNB.

“It’s mentioned in the Constitution, signed by Bangabandhu, that the country will be ruled by the representatives of people elected through a neutral and fair election. There could be no differences of opinion over the matter,” he said.

Speaking at a discussion, he further said, “We’ve achieved the independence and get rid of autocratic regime in 1991 through a united movement. We’ll also achieve our target of restoring democracy in the country through another united movement.”

Jatiya Oikyafront arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club marking the 49th Independence Day.

Expressing his solidarity with the Oikyafront leaders’ demand for the release of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail, Dr Kamal said the government should immediately release those who have been kept in jail unfairly. “We should also consolidate our unity to realise our demands and achieve our targets. We must wage a united movement.”

He said true democracy can be established in the country if people get united. “People will be able to play the role of owners of the country if democracy is restored.”
