‘Undertaking’ claim about Tarique

Main opposition BNP yesterday sought an explanation from Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir about his statement regarding the opposition party’s senior vice chairman, Tarique Rahman.

The minister recently claimed that Tarique Rahman signed a declaration, before leaving for treatment abroad, that he would stay out of politics while he was on parole for corruption charges.

The BNP’s spokesperson and acting secretary general, Mirza Fakhrul Islam, said in a press meet at the chairperson’s Gulshan office: “Please give a specific explanation addressing the nation clarifying when, where, and to whom Tarique Rahman gave the undertaking.”

“Please stop making confusing and false claims. Face political issues politically,” he said, pointing out that in politics, there is no protocol called an “undertaking.”

Fakhrul also said Tarique Rahman will come back to the country after completing his treatment. “Tarique Rahman will come back only when the party feels the time is right. Wait and see, there will be some surprises.”

Tarique, the elder son of BNP chief Khaleda Zia, has been in London for treatment since September 11, 2008 after being released on bail. He was arrested during the army-backed caretaker government in 2007.

When asked whether they will take part in election under the incumbent election commission, Fakhrul said: “We never said we will not take part in any election under this election commission. We only said we will not take part in national polls and by-polls under this election commission.”
