BNP on Wednesday warned that the current regime will be ousted through a strong movement after Eid if it does not resolve the political crisis through talks.
“Still there’s time to overcome the political crisis through dialogue. Take steps for holding a fresh inclusive election. Or else, you’ll be washed away with the strong wave of our movement,” said BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
He was addressing a discussion at the National Press Club arranged by National Awami Party (NAP-Bhasani), marking its 57th founding anniversary.
The BNP spokesman alleged that the government has imposed a dreadful misrule on the country’s people. “Under the circumstances, we can’t sit idle. A democratic and pro- government must be installed through a movement.”
Mentioning that it will not be possible to topple the regime by only movement in the capital, he said the wave of movement will have to spared everywhere from city to village, and village to village.
Fakhrul, however, said the aim of their movement is not to go to power but restore democracy and people’s basic and voting rights.
The BNP leader said Awami League does not believe in democracy though they utter it every time. ”They want to snatch people’s all rights and re-establish one-party rule.”
Stating that looting and carrying out corruption are Awami League’s old habit, he recalled that Moulana Bhashani had branded the party as ‘Nikhil Bangladesh Lootpat Samity’.
Fakhrul also voiced concern for what he said the government’s efforts to gag the media by imposing censorship.
