BNP general secretary Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said that BNP`s acting chairman Tarique Rahman has taken the travel permit by submitting the passport in London.

He said this at a press conference at the party`s central office in the capital`s Nayapaltan on Tuesday.

Mirza Fakhrul said that State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam has made strange, irrational and illegal remarks about his citizenship by showing a document submitted by Tarique Rahman`s birth certificate to the Bangladesh High Commission in London through the UK Department of State.

He alleged if a person does not know what is the reason why a citizen can lose birthright nationality, he should not be in the post of minister of this unelected government which is shameful for the nation.  

Mentioning the so-called movement of the current government which is suffered due to the brutal political vigilance of the Fakhruddin-Moinuddin government, Mirza Fakhrul said Tarique Rahman went to London in 2008 with the permission of the court to get treatment in the condition of crippling and still he is being treated properly due to lack of healing.

"Meanwhile, in his absence, he was given a chance to defend himself in politically motivated, false and fabricated cases", said BNP general secretary Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

Fakhrul urged the government authorities concerned to immediately stop their ‘false’ campaign against the BNP acting chairman.

He also said Tarique is waiting to get a reply from the state minister for foreign affairs to the legal notice that sent to him on Monday.

He said that such a bizarre idea can be presented in front of journalists as a theory or information, or political ignorance and motivated propaganda on Facebook.

BNP`s standing committee member Mirza Abbas, standing committee member   Nazrul Islam, BNP Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi and others top leaders of BNP were present at the press conference.
