BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy said, martyred president and BNP founder Ziaur Rahman moved forward with the unfinished tasks of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman during his stay in prison. Ziaur Rahman declared the independence of Bangladesh in absence of Bangabandhu after accepting his leadership during the liberation war. For this reason Awami League should award posthumous reception to Ziaur Rahman on the eve of golden jubilee of independence.

He said this at a human chain organized in front of Jatiya Press Club on Friday. National Democratic Party (NDP), a component of 20-part alliance observed the program protesting the decision of cancelling Ziaur Rahman’s ‘Beer Uttam’ title.

Gayeshwar Roy said, martyred president Ziaur Rahman was a state recognized title owner freedom fighter. He was the only Beer Uttam title owner who with extreme brevity fought the liberation war staying in the land of Bangladesh. So the title should not be snatched away rather he should be given posthumous reception by the government.

Criticizing Jatiya Muktijoddha Council (JaMuKa) he said, a number of fake freedom fighters were made during the tenure of Awami League government. Many of them are withdrawing allowances and doing services. After seeing these it seems that their contributions are more than the frontline freedom fighters.

Participants in the human chain protested the decision of cancelling Ziaur Rahman’s title and demanded its withdrawal. NDP chairman AM Abu Taher and Labor Party chairman Mostafizur Rahman delivered speeches among others in the human chain.
