BNP secretary general Khandker Delwar Hossain on Wednesday said that the
present government was following a discriminatory policy towards the cases
lodged against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia, her son Tarique Rahman and other
BNP leaders during the rule of the military-backed caretaker government.
"The way they (ruling Awami League party) are withdrawing cases (of
their own leaders) is entirely discriminatory. We demand that the government
should withdraw the cases against all political parties, which was filed during
the tenure of the caretaker government," Delwar said after laying wreaths
and offering prayers at the grave of the late president Ziaur Rahman in
observance of 31st founding anniversary of Jatiyatabadi Mahila Dal.
In response to a question on the acceptance of charge sheet of Zia
Orphanage Trust case at metropolitan session judge’s court this week, the BNP
leader said though Khaleda Zia and Tarique Rhamna’s cases are politically
motivated, the government didn’t withdraw them
