Dhaka – BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir Monday asked the party leaders and activists to find out the reasons behind movement not getting momentum despite the party having huge popularity.He made the call to party rank and file while speaking at a discussion meeting at Institute of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh (IDE,B) to mark the five years of disappearance of party leader Ilias Ali.
Senior leaders, who also spoke on the occasion, however observed that the party is not becoming strengthened due to mistrust and suspicions among each others.
The government is carrying out killings and enforced disappearances in a bit to resist the opponents to cling to power, the leaders claimed. They also identified internal weakness of the party behind anti-government not getting strengthened.
Sylhet Division Solidarity Conference organized the meeting with its president Abdul Quaiyum in the chair demanding safe return of the BNP leader.
The BNP secretary general regretted that the party has failed to take necessary steps on Ilias Ali during the last five years.
The then BNP organising secretary and former lawmaker Ilias Ali was missing on April 17 in 2012. The leaders alleged he was kidnapped by security forces of the Awami League government as part of suppression of the opposition, but the government has denied that.
“We could take stronger role on Ilias Ali issue. The blockade programme after Ilias Ali was a victim of enforced disappearance was successful. But I don’t know why the movement fizzled out gradually,” he observed.
Mirza Alamgir realized that they don’t know why they are becoming failure repeatedly and said may be there is any problem anywhere they don’t know.
“If we could have put the issue to international communities repeatedly, the musk of the government was unveiled at international arena though we did not get Ilias Ali,” he added.
He called upon the organizers to put the issue at international arena and assured them to provide necessary support.
On Teesta issue, the BNP secretary general said the country needs agreements on water sharing of all the 54 common rivers as most its people are dependent on agriculture.
He said problems of people would not be resolved by a subservient government and fair share of water cannot be realised.
“The present government has no public support. So it has not power to bring water of Teesta,” he added.
Standing committee members—Mirza Abbas and Goyeshwar Chandra Roy, Enam Ahmed Chowdhury, Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal and Ilias Ali’s wife Tahsina Rushdi Luna, among others, also spoke on the occasion. – Staff Reporter
