Khaleda’s next programme?

BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Monday afternoon announced an indefinite siege across the county.

She gave the programme at about 4:45pm when she failed to come out of her Gulshan office in the face of the barricades imposed by the police.

"This government has denied our right to hold a rally… The siege programme will continue until the next directive," Khaleda told newsmen inside her office.

Minutes before, she made attempts to leave the office by her car for the BNP`s central office in Naya Paltan.

The BNP chairperson said, "Not only I am confined but also the whole country has been confined today."

"Even I don`t know why I am confined," she added.

Khaleda told the journalists, "They (AL leaders) said they did not confine me, but the gates are locked, outgoing is barred."

"If I am not confined, why the people who are coming to meet me are not allowed to come to my office," Khaleda asked.

She further said, "The government is oppressor. It not only has confined the country`s people but has turned the country into a prison. The country is passing a war-like situation, and the government is responsible for this."
