BNP blasts PM’s stand against caretaker govt


Accusing the government of carrying out repression on the opposition, MK Anwar said, “There’s no peace in people’s minds. Opposition leaders and workers are being subjected to extreme torture. Now they (government) have launched coercive acts against mass media.”
Coming down hard on the government over Mahmudur Rahman’s arrest, the BNP leader said, “This government can’t tolerate its opponents’ views. They’ve closed down Amar Desh printing press after arresting its editor Mahmudur Rahman.”
Referring to the post-liberation war Awami League regime, the bureaucrat-turned politician said, “They had established a one-party Baksal rule and shut down all but four newspapers.”
Renewing their demand for the restoration of the caretaker government, the former minister said, “Caretaker government is now the demand of the mass people. There’s still time for the government to restore the non-party caretaker government system. Don’t push the country towards destruction.”
He also urged the government to show respect to democracy through reinstating the caretaker government system in the Constitution. Mentioning that there has been resistance in every house against this government, he said the ruling Awami League will not be able to foil their ongoing movement over the caretaker government issue.
