DHAKA: Bangladesh Jatiya Dal formed a human chain in front of Jatiya Press Club on Saturday (April 20) demanding unconditional release of imprisoned BNP chief Khaleda Zia.
"Rumors are being spread over Khaleda Zia's release. We want release of her unconditionally, not at any set condition," said BNP Standing committee member Nazrul Islam Khan, as the chief guest.
"Khaleda Zia was sentenced in so-called corruption case. She isn't given bail; all the cases against her are worthy of bail though," he added.
He further said the battle for BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's release will be spread across the country.
BNP Vice Chairman Shamsuzzaman Dudu, Khaleda Zia's advisor Habibur Rahman Habib, Joint Secretary General Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal, among others, took part in the human chain presided over by Jatiya Dal President Advocate Syed Ehsanul Huda.
