Alleging that their party Chairperson has been subjected to "state repression", BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday said her life is now at risk since the government has snatched her right to receive advanced treatment abroad.
"Khaleda Zia has been imprisoned in completely false and fabricated cases, and she has been subjected to state repression...," he said.
In a message on the occasion of International Day in Support of the Victims of Torture, the BNP leader said although Khaleda needs advanced treatment abroad, the government has put a restriction to her travel abroad.
"It's nothing but a manifestation of government's vengeance and extreme torture," he alleged.
He urged the democracy-loving people to get united and put up a resistance against the government's repressive acts.
On Tuesday, Fakhrul at a press conference said the BNP chief has a heart problem and her kidney and liver complications are very critical and she needs treatment at an advanced centre abroad.
On June 19, Khaleda Zia got back home from the capital's Evercare Hospital after 53 days of treatment for Covid-19 infections and other physical complications.
