Liberal Democratic Party President Oli Ahmed alleged that some people do not want BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia to be freed from jail to gain their personal interests.

"Conspiracies are on by various quarters about Khaleda's release. Some people don't want Khaleda Zia's release.Because, they'll be in trouble if she walks out of jail," he said. He came up with the remarks at an Iftar party at the city's Ladies Club on Friday hosted by his party.

Oli also voiced frustration over the inaction of the 20-party alliance to free Khaleda Zia and several thousand opposition leaders and activists.   "We'll go to every part of the country to unite people in a peaceful manner, but we won't indulge in anti-government activities. We'll put in our best efforts to save people, not to harm them and the development."

He also alleged that the incidents of repression on women have marked a sharp rise in the country due to slide in law and order. The former minister also warned that the country's economy may collapse in the coming days if the current situation continues further.
