Khaleda to ‘brief media soon’

The BNP chairperson has been there since Jan 3 after she failed to get out amid heavy police presence.

The former prime minister called an indefinite transport blockade two days later when police barred her from leaving office to lead anti-government agitations.

She has not come out of her office since.

Khaleda said the government confined her but both the ruling Awami League and police claimed the BNP chief was free to leave any time she wanted.

Six BNP Standing Committee members – RA Gani, ASM Hannan Shah, Nazrul Islam Khan, Sarowari Rahman, Moudud Ahmed and Mahbubur Rahman — were seen entering the Gulshan office on Monday afternoon.

“A media briefing will be held by the evening,” her Press Secretary Maruf Kamal Khan told bdnews24.com.

A source said the party chief would address the media herself.

Khan said Khaleda had been at her chamber where she spoke to several senior leaders on the phone after police had withdrawn.

There was a two-tier security in front of her office since Jan 3 and 11 trucks were used to block both ends of Road 86 where the office is.
