DHAKA: Ruling Awami League’s female lawmakers urged BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia not to celebrate her ‘fake’ birthday on 15 August.
The appeal came from a human chain demonstration held in front of the National Press Club on Friday.
Speaking at the demonstration, AL joint general secretary Mahbub-ul-Alam Hanif said BNP should refrain from observing the fake birthday or else it would be thrown into ‘bin’.
Hanif said the birthday of BNP chairperson was not 15 August when she had administered oath as prime minister for the first time.
“Khaleda should be punished as she lied despite the oath and violated constitution by observing her birthday on 15 August,” he said.
Among others, Advocate Tarana Halim also spoke.
