Rizvi also stated in that press note, “Prime minister Sheikh Hasina has turned the country into a large prison. On one hand, the government’s obedient election commission is inviting BNP to join the next election and on the other hand, a crackdown is launched to arrest leaders and activist from all levels including senior ones. It seems like a grand joke.”
