AL governing like Hitler, Mussolini: Ershad

Voicing deep concern over the recent spate in killings abductions and forced disappearances, Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad on Saturday alleged that government is running the country like Hitler and Mussolini. “The Awami League government is running the country like Hitler and Mussolini… The government has failed to stop the incidents of enforced disappearance, killing and abduction. No one had been killed and made disappeared during my rule,” he said. The Jatiya Party chief further said: “The country is passing through a tough time. We hear about democracy and constitution, but where his democracy? What type of country it is where people can’t even sleep in peace? Bodies are floating in rivers. Democracy is now mere a slogan, not in practice.” Ershad, also a special envoy to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, made the remarks while addressing a general meeting of Jatiya Jubo Sanghati at the Institution of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh. Accusing the government of stanching people’s constitutional rights, he also said the current administration has failed to ensure people’s security and the right to life. The former military ruler also came down heavily on BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia for calling him killer of her husband and Abul Mazur. “I know who was there in his next room when Zia was assassinated. Khaleda Zia did politics with them for nearly 20 years. Why didn’t you hold the trial for the killing when you were in power? Why are you now calling me a killer?” Earlier on May 4, Khaleda said Ershad is the killer of Abul Mazur and Ziaur Rahman and he should be tried. Addressing her party’s mass-hugger strike programme on the Jatiya Press Club premises, she also asked the government why the judgement of Ershad in Mazur murder case has been deferred. Reacting to her remarks, Ershad also said Khaleda has resorted to a blame-game as she has no political future. The Jatiya Party chairman said BNP has no capacity to bring a change in regime by overthrow the government. “BNP is neither in Jatiya Sangsad nor in movement. In fact, the party has no power to bring a change to the government and the constitution.” – UNB
