BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has called an 'emergency meeting' of the party's policymaking forum over the prime minister's India visit and the agreements signed between the countries.
The meeting of the National Standing Committee has been set for 8:30 pm on Monday at Khaleda's Gulshan offices, said senior leader Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
“The meeting has been convened to discuss the PM's India visit, the agreements and MoUs signed, the political situation and the party’s steps going forward,” said the BNP Senior Joint Secretary General.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s four-day trip to India will end with her return to Dhaka on Monday night.
The two countries signed 22 agreements and MoUs on Saturday after the official talks led by the prime ministers.
The BNP has been vocal against three of the MoUs on defence cooperation.
Khaleda had spoken out on the topic Sunday, claiming the government had agreed to ‘sell off the country’ in exchange for another five years in power.
“Those who call themselves the current government are not the government of the people. They were not elected by the people. They are scheming, once again, to cling on to power."
