BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Tuesday called upon their party leaders and activists to take all-out preparations to take to the streets from October 1 to force the government to hold a credible election.
“We won’t give the government any chance this time to score in an empty field. We won’t’ allow this regime to go unchallenged,” he said.
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader further said, “We’ll be there in the field together with people. So, get ready to take to the streets from October 1.”
Jatiyatabadi Projonmo 71 central committee arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club demanding BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s release and a fair and natural election.
Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, said the entire nation must get united to remove the current ‘autocratic regime’. “We’ll have to make the national unity process stronger to create a mass wave.”
He said their party will take part in the next general election together with people after freeing their chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail. “We’ll oust the government through a peaceful voting without indulging in any violence.”
About Prime Minister’s comment that Dr Kamal Hossain and Badruddoza Chowdhury forged a unity with corrupt people, Moudud said Sheikh Hasina’s comment are indecent. “We don’t expect such comments from the Prime Minister. Her remarks have clearly exposed that the government has got frightened and worried in the progress of the national unity process. That’s why the Prime Minister and all others in the government are suffering from heartburn.”
The BNP leader urged the Prime Minister to withdraw her comments about the leaders involved in the national unity process for the sake of maintaining discipline in politics.
He also criticized the Prime Minister for calling BNP leaders corrupt and said no government in the last 15-16 years in such massive corruption like the current government.
Moudud said the national unity process is only intensified after such remarks by the Prime Minister as the entire nation is now united to ensure its fall.
