GOPALGANJ, Feb 13 (BSS): Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader said on Thursday the government cannot consider releasing BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on parole without any logical ground, reports BSS.

"None so far has applied to the Home Ministry for Khaleda Zia's release on parole. Even, if they apply, it should have a logical ground," he said.

The minister came up with the remarks while speaking at the inaugural session of triennial council of Tungipara upazila unit of AL on the upazila parishad premises.

Quader said BNP claims family members of Begum Zia have applied in various ways for her release on parole but the Home Ministry did not get any application.

"BNP makes application on television screen" not in reality, he added.

Pointing to BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, the AL general secretary said unlike BNP, Awami League does not do politics of vengeance.
