Bangladesh Nationalist Party secretary-general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday termed the government as ‘neo-autocratic’ and said that the country was witnessing misrule.

`We should free Khaleda Zia, we should free democracy and freedom of speeches. We will do so through tough a movement, following the path showed by Tariqul Islam,’ he said.

Fakhrul was addressing a commemorating meeting marking the first anniversary of death of former party standing committee member Tariqul Islam, also a former minister, at the Jashore district council auditorium in the late afternoon.

`Another leader of our party – Sadek Hossain Khoka – died today (Monday) following the persecution by the neo autocratic government,’ he further said while speaking as the chief guest.

 `We want to see the light of democracy through such deaths,’ he added.

Jashore district unit BNP convener Professor Nargis Begum chaired the meeting arranged by the district unit of the party.

The meeting was also addressed, among others, by party standing committee members Gayeshwar Chandra Roy and Amir Khashru Mahmud Chowdhury, vice-chairmen Barkat Ullah Bulu, Md Shahjahan, Shamsuzzaman Dudu and Nitai Ropy Chowdhury, central leaders Mashiur Rahman, Mehedi Hasan Rumi, Nazrul Islam Manju, Azizul Bari Helal and leaders of Khulna division.

Tariqul Islam had to move from Dhaka to appear at the court due to filing of false cases at a time when he was not physically fit for that, the BNP leader further said, adding,  ‘He had to endure the fascism of the Awami League.’

The BNP leader was also critical of the government for not resolving the issue of Teesta water sharing with India, enforced disappearances and filing of false cases against opposition party people.
