‘Call for dialogue not BNP’s weakness’
09 November 2015, Nirapad News: Repeating its call for holding talks, the BNP has said the call for a dialogue was not the party’s weakness.
“The call for holding a dialogue is not BNP’s weakness. The government is fortunate that despite facing repression, BNP has given proposal to hold talks,” said BNP spokesperson Asaduzzaman Ripon at a press conference at the party’s Naya Paltan central office on Sunday.
The press conference was organised to give the party’s reaction to the PM’s remark that she has no intention to sit for talks with ‘killers’.
Mentioning BNP’s position over at war crimes trial is “very much clear”, he said, “BNP wants a fair and international standard trial for war crime not a politically motivated one.”
Regarding PM’s remarks over IS presence in Bangladesh, the senior BNP leader said that information created concern among the country people. He also called upon all to work unitedly to tackle the future threat of the radical Islamist group.
“All party meeting, national unity and dialogue is a must to save the country and its people,” he added.
