Killings, disappearances on rise for lack of democracy, says Bnp


The BNP Wednesday alleged that incidents of killing and enforced disappearance are rising in the country in absence of democracy.
“The incidents of killing and forced disappearance are occurring one after another as there is no democracy and people’s rights in the country,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
Talking to reporters after a joint meeting of Dhaka City unit BNP at Bhasani Auditorium, he further said people have no security of their lives and property at present.The meeting was organised to make success of BNP’s labour wing Sramik Dal’s May Day rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on Sunday. BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is scheduled to address the rally as the chief guest.
Fakhrul said there is no shred of democracy now in the country.
“The incidents of killing and enforced disappearance have reached an alarming level across the country,” he said.
The BNP leader called upon the people as well as party men to get united and wage movement afresh to restore democracy and people’s rights.
“It is only possible to restore the democracy and rights of people as well as the workers through a united movement,” he said.
He said most of the people of the country are now being oppressed in the hands of law enforcement agencies and the ruling Awami League men.
He urged BNP leaders and activists to make the rally a success with their spontaneous participation.
Referring to the May Day workers rally, he said it would be organised at a time when the government is carrying out oppression against the opposition men.
Earlier, speaking at the joint meeting, BNP standing committee member and Dhaka City BNP convener Mirza Abbas also called upon the party men to make the May Day a success.
He said the May Day rally would be the biggest rally of BNP in the recent times.
BNP chairperson’s adviser Abdul Awal Mintoo, Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal and Abdus Salam, among others, were present at the meeting.
Meanwhile, party sources said the BNP secretary general will fly to Singapore within a day or two for his health check up. – Staff Reporter
