Khaleda before landing in jail: Won’t bow down to anyone
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Thursday instructed her party men not to make any imprudent decision and resort to violence while protesting a special court’s verdict against her. “No one could weaken my moral fibre, and I will not bow down to anyone either,” Khaleda told her party leaders, minutes before landing in jail. Issuing a special directive to BNP leaders and activists, she instructed them to stay united and face any danger together.
