'Secular' alliance to unseat Khaleda regime

By Haroon Habib

DHAKA, NOV. 20. The `secular' Opposition parties of Bangladesh have declared a movement based on a common nine-point charter of demands, with the aim of overthrowing the BNP-Jamaat coalition Government.

The main Opposition Awami League, the Left-leaning 11-party alliance, Jatiya Samjtantrik Dal, National Awami Party and the Jatiya Janata Party have come up with the programme, giving their anti-Government agitation a major thrust.

The `secular' parties said communal extremism had gained ground during the past three years of the BNP-Jamaat rule and the country's sovereignty was at stake.

The agitation will begin on December 11 with a 1,000-km human chain stretching across the country. .

The Opposition's key demand is the exit of the Government and holding of free and fair elections under a neutral caretaker government.
