BD turned into ‘corrupt state’: BNP


Dhaka – BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday alleged that the government has turned into Bangladesh into a ‘corrupt state’, UNB news agency reported.
Talking to reporters at his residence in the northern district of Thakurgaon, he also alleged that the government is trying to eliminate BNP by implicating its leaders and activists in ‘false cases’ and sending them to jail.“The government has turned the entire country into a corrupt state. It’s now legitimising corruption as it has no accountability to people,” the BNP leader said.
He said the banking sector has been destroyed through plundering and corruption. “A bank MD has been removed while its DMD asserted on charge of corruption. Even, the Finance Minister said there has been a massive plundering in the banking sector.”
Mentioning that Bangladesh is passing through a very tough time, he said the government itself is making the country unstable by resorting to various plots and carrying out secret killings in a bid to cling to power.
About the recent countrywide combing operation conducted by law enforcers, Fakhrul said the aim of the drive was to arrest BNP leaders and activists instead of tracking down militants.
He said the government is going ahead with its plan to establish a one-party rule by suppressing its opponents.
The BNP leader called upon all to get united to save the country and restore democracy and all basic rights.
