Dhaka – BNP senior leader Hafizuddin Ahmed on Saturday said their party will take to the streets after its national council to oust the current regime in the interest of the country.
Speaking at a discussion, he also warned that they will come up with a befitting reply on the streets to the critics who are saying BNP has no strength to wage a strong movement.
Zia Nagorik Forum, a pro-BNP platform, arranged the discussion titled ‘Democracy and Independent Judiciary’ at the Jatiya Press Club.
Hafiz, a BNP vice chairman, criticised the government for not giving permission for using any venue to hold their party’s council on March 19. “We want to take to the streets in the days to come to overthrow the current fascist regime for the sake of country’s people and its development.”
Mentioning that the country is passing through a critical time, he said, “Our party will wage a movement after the council under BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia’s leadership to save people from it.”
The BNP leader also alleged that the ruling party men are violating the lection code of conduct to ensure their victory in the UP polls while the Election Commission is playing a biased role instead of creating a level-playing field.
Hafiz alleged that a foreign national, arrested in connection with recent ATM card scum, during interrogation told police that many ruling party leaders were involved in it. “Awami League is destroying the country as its plundering public money in the name of democracy.”- UNB
