The BNP-led 18 party alliance last night gave the government until March to reinstate the caretaker government system. They warned of a tougher agitation if the demand is not met by this time.

The ultimatum came from a meeting of the alliance at BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's Gulshan office.

The alliance did not declare any schedule for the agitation, as the Secondary School Certificate examination is starting from next month. During the time, they would observe some soft programmes, said People's Party Chairman Shakayot Hossain.

However, BNP coordinator Tariqul Islam told reporters that they would declare the programme schedule in two days.

Liberal Democratic Party President Oli Ahmed, Bangladesh Jatiya Party President Andaleeve Rahman Partho, working council member of Jamaat, Mowlana Abdul Halim were present in the meeting, among others.

It is clear that the hartals and political unrest will start as soon as the ultimatum ends. Be ready everyone. Who do we blame, the opposition or the ruling party? There is still time for both the parties to sit down and come to a settlement of this caretaker government issue.

Go to the Parliament and place your demand there. Giving ultimatum will not work in democratic systems. Parliament is the best place to speak and place all the grievances. Cease all Honeymoons with the murderers and killers, thugs of 1971 and speak with clarity.
