Dhaka-The BNP yesterday accused the government of trying to cling to hang on to power by using the militancy as a weapon.“Khaleda Zia has called for unity against militancy from her sense of responsibility that came spontaneously from out of her heart. But unfortunately there are attempts to mislead the people centering on this call,” said secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
The BNP leader called upon all concerned not to confuse the people on the call of Khaleda Zia on national unity against terrorism and militancy.
Addressing a meeting of National Democratic Party (NDP), an ally of BNP-led 20-party alliance, Mirza Alamgir said the ruling Awami League never responded to any call for protecting the nation.
“This time, the party also did not respond to the call of Khaleda Zia for national unity,” he added.
“Military, extremism and violence are being rising as there is no democracy in the country,” he said adding that what is happening in the country is nothing but an ominous sign.
The NDP organized the function on the occasion of eighth death anniversary of NDP founder and former minister Anwar Zahid.
The BNP leader questioned whether Bangladesh’s situation would turn towards that of Afghanistan or Pakistan and hundreds of people will die or thousands of people will leave the country as refuges like in Syria.
He alleged that there is no democracy and fundamental rights of the people in the
country.
“The ruling quarter is going ahead to establish one-party rule in the country,” he said.
He called upon all to get united to realize people’s rights and restore their voting rights.
Mirza Aalmgir observed that the ongoing political impasse could be resolved by establishing a people’s government by holding an election under a non-party government.
Recalling the memory of Anwar Zahid, the BNP leader said Zahid never been after money and he always spoke about the people.
He stressed the need for taking steps for reaching his writings to all by compiling those.
Presided over by Khondaker Golam Mortaza, chairman of the organisaiton, the meeting was also addressed, among others, by Jagpa president Shafiul Alam Prodhan, Bangladesh NAP chief Jebel Rahman Ghani and Anwar Zahid’s brother Mobaidur Rahman.-STAFF REPORTER
