“More than our 600 leaders and workers have been made to disappear and over a thousand others have been killed. Our 35 lakh leaders and activists have been implicated in false cases,” he said while addressing an iftar mahfil on Sunday, reports UNB.
The BNP leader also alleged that their party chairperson Khaleda Zia has been unfairly kept under house arrest by convicting her in 'false' cases.
