Dhaka, Mar 31 - BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Sunday said the Awami League and their associate bodies  embezzled people’s money in the name of development like quick rental, Padma Bridge, Metro Rail and flyovers.

“Not only AL and their associate bodies -Chhatra League, Jubo League ,but also those who have supported AL shamelessly and helped it  to suppress opposition are part of this looting, “he said.

He said these at a Eid gifts distribution programme  organised by Bangladesh Jatiyayabadi  Samajik Sangskritik Sangstha (Jasas) at BNP’s Nayapalton central  office.

He strongly criticised former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed’s role during BNP’s movement as he (Benazir) had tortured opposition leaders and activists brutally.

“Today the nation has come to know he (Benazir) has built a haven on earth which beats the story of Alif Laila,” he said.

How he has gained such a huge amount of wealth? Rizvi questioned.

Pointing at sky rocketing prices of commodities, he said purchasing of rice, pulse, oil, salt, fish, meat has become difficult for common people.

Even people can’t arrange a drink to break their fast as lemon’s price has gone beyond their buying capacity, he said.

It is unbelievable that per kilogram date is being sold at Tk750 which is absolutely impossible for a day labourer or rickshaw puller to buy, Rizvi said.- UNB
