Citing the articles of the constitution, the BNP leader said this kind of drive is an example of naked inference on individual freedom, which is also the complete violation of the articles 31, 32 and 43 of the constitution.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam called upon the police to discharge their constitutional duties refraining from such activity to create a democratic atmosphere in the country.
When asked, he said police also approached his residence to collect information. But they could not show any letter regarding their visit.
The BNP leader said, "We are observing that this kind of raid is being carried out since we have started our activities. They are using this as a tool to thwart the movement and intimidate and harass the leaders and activists."
