We could not forge a national unity: Fakhrul


Dhaka-BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday admitted that they could not forge a national unity to deal with the present situation.“No mass upsurge has been successful in the political history of the country without having a national unity. It is sad but true we could not forge that type of national unity,” he said while speaking at meeting at Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU).
Hence, the BNP leader called upon his party leaders and activists to work for creating a national unity to face the current situation. He reminded the party men that 1990, the year ended the Ershad regime through movement and the year 2016 is not equal.
Jihad Smriti Parishad organized the meeting in the memory of Nazir Uddin Jihad, who was killed during the anti-autocratic movement in nineties.
Mirza Alamgir however claimed that a national unity was created before the January 5 elections in 2014 but the victory could not be achieved due to then situation. “The victory could have been achieved if then geo-politics can bring under control,” he added.
The BNP leader also claimed that 90 per cent people do not like Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina but it is astonishing that those who are talking about democracy do not dislike her. The neighboring country extends its support to her. It should be realized,” he said.
Presided over by former DUCSU VP Amanullah Aman, the meeting was also addressed, among others, by BNP leader Habibur Rahman, Khairul Kabir Khokan, Nazimuddin Alam and Mostafizur Rahman.
Earlier, speaking at another meeting, the BNP secretary general criticised the government for carryout out extra judicial killings on the name of curbing militancy.
“The government is carrying out unlawful operations in the name of curbing militancy. But questions have arisen out in the minds of people about motive of the government behind killings of militants without trials,” he said while speaking at a mourning meeting at Dhaka Ainjibi Bhaban in the city.
Jatiyatabadi Ainjibi Forum organized the meeting recalling the memory of BNP leader Brig Gen (Retd) ASM Hannan Shah, who died in Singapore on September 27.
Mirza Alamgir said the law enforcers failed to rescue a single number of militants. “BNP wants trails of militants in accordance with the law,” he said.
“The present government endangers the country’s democracy. It is not the weakness of the BNP but harmful for the nation,” he added.
Presided over by BNP law affairs secretary Sanaullah MIah, Masud Ahmed Talukder, Omar Faruq Faruqui, Joynul Abedin Mesbah and Taherul Islam Touhid, among others, addressed the meeting.-STAFF REPORTER
