Separate meetings with other leaders to take place on Wednesday and Thursday
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said they have decided to hold a series of meetings with their party’s central leaders to discuss the overall political situation in the country.
“We’ll take their views on what we should do for waging a movement to restore democracy,” he said.
BNP policymakers will sit with the party’s vice chairmen and Advisory Council members on Tuesday as part of their planned series of meetings with central leaders to work out their next course of action.
The meeting will begin at 3:30pm at the party chairperson’s Gulshan office.
Fakhrul said their party wants a permanent solution to the issue of the formation of an Election Commission. “But before that, we want a neutral government under which a neutral Election Commission will be formed.”
He said the problem over the formation of a polls-time impartial government must be resolved for holding an inclusive and credible national election.
The BNP policymakers will also hold a meeting with the party’s senior joint secretary general, secretaries general, organising secretaries and assistant organising secretaries on Wednesday and another with the leaders of different associate bodies on Thursday.
The meetings are meant for taking opinions of the party central leaders about the next general election, anti-government movement and work out the party’s next course of action.
BNP Organizing Secretary Syed Emran Saleh Prince said Mirza Fakhrul and the Standing Committee members will initially hold three separate meetings with the central leaders.
Later, the BNP policymakers will hold meetings with the members of the party's National Executive Committee and district-level leaders.
He said BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman will virtually join each of the meetings.
