BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said the students showed politicians the path of unity.

He urged political parties to forge a national unity to overcome the country's prevailing 'dangerous' situation.

"The fascist force is shattering everything. They're trying to gag the media by attacking journalists. The students have showed us the state is in need of repair," he said on Monday.

The BNP leader further said, "It'll be very difficult to get rid of the country's current dangerous situation without a national unity. The students have opened our eyes. Their movement has shaken all of us. Our boys have brought a scope for us to get united," the BNP leader he said.

The BNP leader came up with the remarks while speaking at a solidarity rally arranged by Udbhigna Nagorik Samaj (worried civil society) at the Jatiya Press Club.

Fakhrul said it is now the responsibility of all the political parties to play a role for the nation by responding to the call for forging a national unity.

About a case filed against him and two other BNP leaders for allegedly conspiring against the state instigating students, he said now cases are not a problem for him as he has been facing 86 cases.

"Even, our some leaders are facing 150-200 cases. It won't be possible to resist our voice by filing cases,' he said.

Later, Fakhrul went to the High Court and met pro-BNP senior lawyers.

According to UNB, he discussed the legal issue with the lawyers to get bail in the case.

A case was filed against BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi and its standing committee member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury on Monday for instigating violence during the ongoing student movement demanding safe road.

AB Siddique, president of Jananetri Parishad, a pro-Awami League organisation, filed the case with the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate HM Toaha.
