He made the claim while addressing the media during a press briefing at BNP's Naya Paltan headquarters on Sunday.
He further claimed: “People who were involved with war crimes later got involved with the Awami League and are now continuing politics with the ruling party.”.
“The ruling party’s activists are continuously attacking our leaders and activists nationwide, ahead of the election,” he added.
Rizvi further went on to claim: “The government is using social media to spread fake news against former president Ziaur Rahman’s family members. They are also still filling false cases against our party members.”
