BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Friday said democracy established in the country through the sacrifices of the blood of hundreds of thousands of martyrs is not safe yet. She accused the government of shackling nation with a one-party cruel rule.
In a message issued marking the Fall of Autocracy Day she said, “Our democracy has been stumbled again and again on its march forward…the democracy established at the blood of hundreds of martyrs is not yet out of danger.”Khaleda, a former Prime Minister, issued the message commemorating the fall of military ruler HM Ershad’s in the face of a mass upheaval on December 6, 1990.
She alleged that the true colour of the cruel and despotic one-party rule is exposing gradually with the changing attitude of current regime. “People’s rights and freedom have been put at stake once again by chaining the nation with the one-party cruel rule through holding the January-5 unilateral election.”
Khaleda said that the party having the spirit of one-party Baksal rule together with the autocrat who had annihilated democracy in the 80s have destroyed all the democratic institutions. “This undemocratic evil force is gradually stanching people’s basic and constitutional rights.”
The BNP chief urged all to get united to resist the evil forces and give democracy a permanent shape.
On December 6, 1990, the autocratic Ershad regime was forced to step down handing over power to a caretaker administration after nine years of rule. Since then, different socio-political organisations have been observing the day as the Fall of Autocracy Day or Democracy Day. – UNB
