Khaleda asks Govt not to push country to uncertainly

Dhaka – BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Tuesday said that the ruling party should reach a consensus with the opposition over the nature of polls-time government to save the country from confrontations and uncertainty.“Time is running out fast.  I hope they (AL) will come to the path of compromise to save the country. Don’t push the country towards the path of uncertainty any further. I urge them to behave responsibly and to try to understand the people’s pulse,” she said.
Khaleda, also the leader of the opposition in parliament, made the call while addressing a views-exchange and discussion programme organised by Bangladesh Babsayee Parishad at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital.
She also called upon the business leaders to get united and take to the streets to resist any move to hold a unilateral election if the government does not come to the path of negotiation.
The BNP chief said the opposition’s demand for arranging the next general elections under a non-party caretaker government has turned into a national demand. “Let us all be vocal and protect people’s voting rights and democracy through a united movement. Today it is our prime national duty.”
Mentioning that the country’s democracy is at stake, Khaleda said every citizen of the country will have to get united to save democracy and ensure peaceful power transfer.
Assuring the business leaders of ensuring a business-friendly environment if her party is voted to power, the former premier said, “We won’t do business if we form government…we’ll rather be a business-friendly government removing all the obstacles to the path of advancement of flourishing business.”
Issuing a note of warning, the BNP chief said they will resist the one-sided election if the government tries to do so. “I’ve already told in Sylhet and also saying it today the one-sided election will be thwarted by forming polling station-based sangram committees across the country.  The businesspeople should raise their voice against any unilateral polls.”
Mentioning that one party rule will get established with a lopsided election, she said one-party rule cannot bring prosperity in the country. “Individuals and particular party get benefits from any one-party rule.”
The days of the incumbent regime are numbered, Khaleda said adding that good days are coming as they will form a business-friendly government if they get people’s mandate.
Portraying a gloomy picture of the country’s economy and business sector, the BNP chief said though the government has been carrying out rhetoric over the last five years about its imaginary development success, the country’s economy is virtually at stake as the government has miserably failed to come up with necessary support.
Khaleda also alleged that the government is destroying the country’s RMG sector with its blueprint.
Once again mentioning that her party would bring about a radical change in political culture, the former premier said they, if voted to power, will form a new type of government to serve the nation better.
Khaleda, however, did not elaborate her party’s plan but said, “Time will say what we want to do. I won’t elaborate our plan today. We would like to prove it with our actions.”
Promising that her government will give priority to merits, the opposition leader said they will ensure representation of all sections of society and consider their opinions.
“We won’t tolerate corruption, terrorism and politicisation. We won’t follow the spoilt politics as we want to bring about a substantial change in political culture,” she said.
