(BNP Communication) — BNP chief Khaleda Zia visited senior party leader Moudud Ahmed after his eviction from his Gulshan home of around four decades.
Begum Zia was seen speaking to Moudud Ahmed, who was visibly shaken by the eviction drive and was surrounded by movers and policemen. He informed Begum Zia the raid was launched without any prior notice.
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Vice Chairman Khandoker Mahbub Hossain, Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi and Joint Secretary General Mahbub Uddin Khokon were present with the party chief.
Before visiting the former minister Begum Zia said at an Iftar party, “He (Moudud) is a BNP man, and they’re accusing him of illegally occupying the house. Barrister Moudud has been living in that house for 30 years. He has been thrown out into the street today.”
She also recalled how the government had also thrown her out of her home of 40 years.
“The people are watching everything. The government too will be thrown out. They think they’ll be fine. But the people won’t let that happen. Allah surely does justice,” she added.
Moudud speaking to reporters earlier deplored the administration move stating “The case with the Supreme Court has been cleared. But why can’t there be a notice? Did the court give out an order today? Do they (RAJUK) have an order?”
“They just walk into someone’s house! Do we not have laws?” bemoaned the senior lawyer.
“How can they say this is state property? This isn’t the state’s property. The Supreme Court said so.”
