AL syndicate raising commodity prices ahead of Ramadan: BNP

Dhaka- BNP on Tuesday alleged that a ruling party-backed business syndicate is plundering public money by shooting up the prices of essentials ahead of Ramadan.Speaking at a discussion, BNP standing committee member Mirza Abbas brought the allegation.
“The government loudly declared the prices of essentials won’t go up during Ramadan as the market is under their control. But, we see the prices of all commodities have already shot up,” he said.
The BNP leader further said, “The ruling party-backed business syndicate is looting public money by unusually hiking the prices of essentials ahead of the fasting month.”
Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal, BNP’s youth wing, organised the programme at the Jatiya Press Club, marking the 35th death anniversary of BNP founder Ziaur Rahman.
Abbas said Awami League men always try to make every occasion as their opportunity to make quick buck. “They’re not even ready to spare common people from plundering their money in the holy month of Ramadan.”
He alleged that the government is plotting to minus BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and its senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman to eliminate the party. “We want to tell the government that no one, except Allah, can destroy BNP, no matter how many party leaders and activists are thrown into jail and repressed.”
Abbas, also the convener of Dhaka City unit BNP, urged the leaders and activists of Jubo Dal to work sincerely to make their organisation stronger as Ziaur Rahman had established his party’s youth wing to maintain peace and stability in the country.
Speaking at the programme, another BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy said if the government arrests Khaleda Zia it will only widen the path to send Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to jail.
He alleged that the government is staging dramas one after another to malign BNP as it does not want to face its political opponent politically.
Claiming that their party is on a movement to restore democracy, not to go to power, he said, “It may take time to get success, but our current struggle won’t turn out to be unsuccessful.”
