The BNP high command has held a second day meeting with central leaders on party restructuring and future programs. Going beyond the context of the six-hour meeting that began on Wednesday afternoon, the leaders blamed the National Unity Front as the main reason for the party’s collapse in the 11th general election. Many people are angry about spending time behind the united front. However, BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman did not respond to such harsh statements.

However, the leaders of the standing committee did not make any statement on Wednesday. The third and final meeting will be held on Thursday. Where the acting chairman will talk about everything.
A co-organizing editor who attended the meeting told the Dhaka Times on condition of anonymity: Many go out of their way to tarnish the image of the front. ‘
At the meeting, the organizing secretary Shama Obaid loudly asked the acting chairman, the head of the United Front. What is the result of the election under Kamal Hossain? On the contrary, many of the team has been broken since the front. Grassroots values have been created.
Meanwhile, after the meeting, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said, “Today’s discussion was mainly on current political and organizational issues. We may have two more meetings. Not decided yet. A decision in this regard will be taken at the meeting next Saturday. We will have more meetings at that stage with the members of the executive committee who are present at that meeting.
Fakhrul said, “The meeting has strongly condemned the false and baseless propaganda spread in the media about our acting chairman Tareq Rahman.
On the issue of dialogue, another organizational secretary wants to know, what is the benefit of having a dialogue with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Ganobhaban before the last election? The leaders and workers wanted to see its harvest. Was it just an invitation to sit down and eat with the Prime Minister?
During and after the meeting, the Dhaka Times spoke to several leaders.
BNP co-organizing secretary Abdus Salam Azad said, “We want unity in the party.” I don’t want grassroots division We want discipline and beautiful committee. The BNP will welcome those who come with the same objective in the anti-government movement. Leaders and activists do not want any alliance or front with anyone outside the nationalist ideology. We made it clear.
There have also been sporadic discussions about Jamaat-e-Islami But neither negative nor positive. A joint secretary general spoke about BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia at the meeting. He said, ‘Madame was released from prison but she was not released. Prisoner on government terms. We still can’t free him. But I have spent time and labor on strange things.
Another joint secretary general, the founder of the Public Health Center. Referring to Jafrullah Chowdhury, he said, ‘He is unbalanced. It is not clear what he said.
Many seniors laugh while saying this. The leaders also expressed doubts about the ideology of Jafrullah Chowdhury.
