BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia is likely to visit the UK and the USA in December or January, party sources told The Daily Star.
During the tenure of the incumbent government, this would be Khaleda’s second visit to the two countries which, party members say, “hold great significance for us in terms of their political and economic influence over Bangladesh”.
The opposition leader’s previous visit was in May, 2011. Party members severely criticised the 15-day-long visit as the BNP chief could not meet any high profile political leaders.
“But this time we want her USA and UK visit to be a success,” a BNP leader said wishing not to be named. A vice-chairman and an adviser to Khaleda Zia have already started working to this effect, he added.
