Leaders, activists vow to 'reinstate' democracy


BNP celebrated the 84th birth anniversary of its founder Ziaur Rahman on Sunday, vowing afresh to "reinstate" democracy and to free party Chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail.

BNP leaders and activists led by party Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, paid homage to Zia by placing wreaths at Zia’s grave in the morning. Later they offered Fateha and a Munajat seeking eternal peace for the departed soul.

BNP’s flag was hoisted atop all BNP offices across the country.

He recalled the BNP founder's contributions to the country's development and the restoration of a 'multiparty democracy.'

Born on January 19, 1936, in Bagbari of Bogra, Ziaur Rahman founded BNP in 1978 and became the country’s seventh president.

EVM a new strategy, says Fakhrul

Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) are a new tool to manipulate election results, alleged BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

“Now they (Awami League) have introduced EVM, a new technique, to rig election results. Elections should be held with transparent ballot boxes. We need to materialize this (through a movement),” he said.

“It is only a trick to destroy Bangladesh’s election system completely,” he said.
