Dhaka, July 4: The government is not interested in building a national unity to fight back militants, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said on Monday.
“Despite offering for national unity—but it appears that the government does not want to build a national unity with BNP as the ruling party leaders are giving condition to leave Jamaat-e-Islami,” he told reporters after paying homage to Gulshan attack victims at the Army Stadium in Dhaka’s Banani in the morning.
Mirza Fakhrul also said statements from different Awami League leaders asking BNP to leave Jamaat prove that Awami League is not eager for national unity.
He observed that this is the high time of national unity keeping every other difference aside.
A group of BNP leaders led by Mirza Fakhrul paid tribute by placing wreaths at the coffins of the victims.
A total of 20 people, including three Bangladeshis, were killed by terrorists at Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka’s Gulshan on Friday.
