In an immediate response to the Khilafat Majlis’ withdrawal from the 20-party alliance, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said, “Any party has the right or freedom to leave the alliance.” As an independent team, any party can make any decision. This is an internal matter of their party. If the Khilafah Majlis thinks they will not be in the 20-party alliance, they have that freedom.
In an immediate response to reporters on Friday, Mirza Fakhrul said, “Basically, many of us political parties have moved forward in alliance with one goal.” Now if they think there is no need for an alliance, they can leave. We have nothing to do here.
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir alleged that Khelafat Majlis has decided to quit BNP-led 20 party alliance facing pressure from the government.
“They have surely left the alliance under duress from the government. I think this is part of the government’s effort to create a division among the anti-government political parties,” Fakhrul said after Khelafat Majlis announced to quit the alliance at a press conference on Friday.
BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy is blaming the government for leaving the Khilafat Majlis alliance. He said the biggest reason for leaving the alliance was pressure from the government on the parties. There are also disputes between the parties.
