BNP denounces attack on Nat’l Committee procession


Dhaka-Terming inhuman and brutal the police attack on a procession of the National Committee to Protect Oil, Gas, Mineral Resources, Power and Port towards Indian High Commission in the city, BNP on Tuesday said it has demonstrated that the country now lacks democracy. In a statement, party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir also voiced deep concern over the incident.
He said the current regime, which has got ‘isolated’ from people, is not only subduing the opposition’s movement, but also brutally suppressing the peaceful demonstrators who are on a movement to realise their justified demand in the interest of the country.
“The country’s people are now living in an unbearable situation due to the government’s repressive acts. It’s harshly repressing people ignoring their justified demand and democratic rights instead to showing sympathy to them,” the BNP leader observed.
Earlier in the day, police foiled a procession of the National Committee near Mowchak area during their ‘march towards Indian High Commission’ to submit an open letter to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to protest the implementation of coal-fired power plant at Rampal near the Sundarbans,
Fakhrul alleged that the police attack was made on the National Committee’s procession as the democratic rights are now snatched by the government. “This attack is surely inhuman and brutal one. We don’t have suitable words to denounce the heinous attack by law enforcers,” the BNP secretary general said.
Claiming that nearly 30 leaders and activists of the National Committee were injured in the attack, Fakhrul prayed for their early recovery.
He also demanded the government ensure proper punishment to the attackers putting them on trial.
