Economy collapses, people float at sea: Dr. Moyeen


BNP standing committee member Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan on Tuesday said the collapse of country’s economy could not be hidden through the speeches of government ministers.
“Where is the country’s economy? Thousands of people are now floating on the sea. They are desperate and darkness gripped them. They are making journey by sea for jobs taking risk of lives. This is the state of our economy today,” he said while addressing a discussion meeting at party headquarters at Naya Paltan in the city.He said the tall talks of the government ministers cannot prove that all are well in the economy without collapse.
Jatiyatabadi Krishak Dal, a front organisation of the BNP, organised the meeting to mark the 34th death anniversary of late President Ziaur Rahman.
Dr Moyeen Khan alleged that major projects are taken for the development of the capital but no major projects are taken for the improvement of the rural area. “This methodology will never make the poor people happy,” he said.
Presided over by MA Taher, acting president of the organisation, the meeting was also addressed, among others, by Abdus Salam azad, Habibur Rahman Habib, Syed Mehdi Ahmed Rumi and Takdir Hossain Jasim.
Meanwhile, BNP international affairs secretary Dr Asaduzzaman Ripon on Tuesday said they have no support to Jatiya Press Club’s managing committee which is formed based on understanding.
He said they neither want the turning of Press Club as nationalist one nor as the Press Club of Awami League.
“We do not do politics of sharing and we do not believe in it. We believe in democracy. It should be resolved democratically as to who will run the institute,” he said.
The BNP leader’s comments came five days after formation of a managing committee of the Press Club with Shafikur Rahman and Quamrul Islam Chowdhury as its president and general secretary at the biennial general meeting in the absence of the leaders of expired managing committee led by Kamaluddin Sabuj and Syed Abdal Ahmed. – Staff Reporter
