Published on: 6:17 pm - Monday | January 8, 2018

Claiming that there is no democracy in Bangladesh, the BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday said that his party got tired of talking about democracy for last five years.

“BNP always talks about democracy.We’re now tired of repeatedly talking about democracy for last five years,” he said.

Fakhrul came up with  the comment at a press briefing after a joint meeting at BNP’s Nayapaltal party office.

The senior BNP leader condemned the Prime Minister’s recent remarks over the BNP chairperson and its top leaders, saying that the PM’s remarks are totally non-political and devoid of political etiquette.

He also urged the PM to refrain from making such kind of objectionable comment in future.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, at a programme on January 5, said her government has completed four years of its tenure as people cast their votes in favour of Awami League. Criticising Khaleda Zia, she also said Khaleda Zia has understood that she has no ability to construct a bridge like Padma Bridge.

In another programme on January 4, she said, “Some knowledge which Khaleda Zia has are used for making money through embezzling and stealing, burning and killing people, and she can only do these evil works.”

Expressing his frustration over holding a fair election in the present political situation, Fakhrul alleged that the government is walking on wrong path.

Replying to a question, the BNP Secretary General said, “We’ll take part in next election. But, we’re yet to finalise the list of possible candidates.”

He also urged the present government to hold  the election under a non-party supportive government immediately after dissolving the parliament.

Denouncing the President’s address in the inauguration of the winter session of the 10th Parliament, Fakhrul said it is unfortunate that our President is implementing the agenda of  certain political party.

In the briefing, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced a week-long programme marking the 81st birth anniversary of party founder Ziaur Rahman.
