Dhaka, Jan 9 (bdnews24.com)—BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia has alleged that her speech to the nation on Sunday was not aired live on private television channels due to government pressure.
She made the remarks on Sunday after giving her speech at her Gulshan office.
Khaleda said, “Several TV channels took preparation to telecast my speech. But later I heard it was not aired as the government did not let to.”
Private TV channels Bangla Vision, NTV, Ekushey Television, Islamic TV and Channel I completed preparation to air the speech by noon. Even their reporters also informed bdnews24.com about the live telecast.
But, surprisingly, when Khaleda began her press conference around 4pm, it was not seen on those channels.
The press conference was arranged in reaction to prime minister Sheikh Hasina’s televised address to the nation on completion of her government’s two years in office.
Hasina claimed her party was successful in the last two years, while Khaleda said the ruling alliance had established a reign of terror in the country during that perioid.
“No one is allowed to speak up against their (alliance government) misrule.”
