Give me another chance to serve
2012-11-20
[Bangla Daily Star] BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia
Three-term PM of Bangla, widow of deceased dictator Ziaur Rahman, head of the Bangla Nationalist Party, an apparent magnet for corruption ...
yesterday sought public support for another term in power, pledging a facelift of the country through massive development work.

"Give me one more chance. I will give the country a facelift through massive development work and will make it free of corruption," she told a rally at Bangabandhu Park in Barisal city organised by the BNP-led 18-party alliance.

"If I fail to do that, I'm giving you my word, I'll accept any punishment," added the former premier.

The opposition alliance has been campaigning for the restoration of the recently-abolished caretaker government system to oversee the general elections.

In an apparent reference to the allies of the Awami League in the ruling grand alliance government, Khaleda said, "Come out of the control of thieves. Otherwise, you will also have to shoulder the responsibility of its (government's) failures and corruption."

The opposition leader said no election would be allowed to take place under the Awami League government. "The election will be held only under a non-partisan and neutral government."

She alleged that the Awami League had done nothing for the welfare of the people. "Have a look and see the call of people. They want an election under a non-party and neutral government," Khaleda said.
