Leader of the Opposition Sheikh Hasina on Friday accused the BNP-Jamaat-led coalition of carrying out a plot to kill senior and popular leaders of her party to cling on to power and to gain advantage in the next election.
Hasina said that SAMS Kibria was killed as part of the BNP-Jamaat-led government's cleansing operation against Awami League to hang on to power. She alleged at a press conference at party's Dhanmondi office that the ruling coalition has a plan to get rid of all prospective Awami League candidates in the next election. Announcing a 60-hour hartal that starts today to continue till 6:00pm on Monday protesting the Thursday's blast, Hasina said she is afraid more of similar attacks would be made on her party colleagues shortly.
