Plot on to depoliticise Bangladesh: BNP

Dhaka, Dec 18 – BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Wednesday alleged that government is conspiring to depoliticise Bangladesh confining their chairperson Khaleda Zia to jail.“There’s a deep-rooted conspiracy behind keeping Khaleda Zia in jail. That’s to depoliticise Bangladesh. People don’t have political rights in the country,” he said while addressing a discussion, marking the Victory Day.
Urging BNP activists to be organised, Fakhrul said like previous dictators, the incumbent government will be removed from power through a movement.
BNP organised the programme at the Mahanagar Natya Mancha in the city where party’s standing committee members and other senior leaders spoke.
Standing Committee member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain alleged that a single person’s ‘greed’ for staying in power has ruined all the achievements of the country.
Mirza Abbas, another standing committee member, urged their party leaders and activists to wage an organised movement to free the party chief from jail.
Blasting the government’s silence over the National Register of Citizens (NRC) of India, BNP leader Gayeshwar Chandra Roy said it is no more India’s internal issue as it is putting the neighbouring country’s interest at risk.
Admitting India’s contributions to the Liberation War, he said, “We used to believe that they helped us during the Liberation War. But it now seems that they’d invested in the war,” he added.
Standing Committee member Abdul Moyeen Khan and Chairperson’s adviser Mizanur Rahman Minu, among others, spoke at the programme. – UNB
