Dr Kamal Hossain, president of Gono Forum, on Saturday alleged that democracy was buried in the country through holding a 'tainted and so-called' national election on December 30.
Speaking at a meeting of Gono Forum's presidium members, Dr Kamal, however, hoped that people will surely protect the country from destruction, said a party press release, reports UNB.
"The national unity must be cemented and intensified to restore democracy, the rule of law and people's voting rights," Dr Kamal said.
He said people are active to get rid of the current situation. "We'll have to work in this regard."
At the meeting, the Gono Forum presidium members decided to hold the party's national council on April 27 in the capital instead of March 23. Earlier on January 12, the party announced holding the council on March 23-24.
