BNP on Thursday said its Thakurgaon-3 MP elect Zahidur Rahman has become a 'mass enemy' by taking oath violating the party decision.
"Those who take oath defying the party decision, leaving its ideal and keeping its chairperson in jail, has no capability to remain with the nationalist force. They're mass enemies," said BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy.
Roy came up with the remarks at a human-chain programme in front of the National Press Club nearly an hour after Zahidur was sown in.
The BNP leader said people will give befitting reply to Zahid for breaching the party decision, according to a UNB report.
"Our party decision is that we won't go to parliament and if anyone violates the decision he can't be considered as a party man," said the BNP leader.
Bangladesh Mufassil Sangbadik Forum arranged the human-chain programme demanding the release of BNP chief Khaleda Zia from jail.
