BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday alleged that the government is having nightmares of losing power since it has no confidence in the country’s people.
“We want to hold a rally at Nayapaltan peacefully on December 10. But they (AL) have lost sleep in fear of losing their power. They themselves are saying that their thrones will be overturned,” he said.
Speaking at a massive rally in Rajshahi, the BNP leader also BNP had many rallies at Nayapaltan, even in presence of party chairperson Khaleda Zia, earlier without any chaos, according to UNB.
“You (AL) know you’ve committed many misdeeds. You have no confidence in people. So, you are also sacred and having nightmares that Khaleda Zia and Tarique Rahman are coming (to power),” he observed.
Fakhrul said the government has been carrying out various occurrences and filing false and fictitious cases against the BNP leaders and activists.
“They’ve now started staging the drama of militants. They create militants for their own needs. They also set fire to buses and indulge in arson violence for their own interests. This is the Awami League.”
As part of the party’s divisional programme, BNP’s Rajshahi city unit arranged the rally on Rajshahi Madrasa ground in the city.
Fakhrul categorically said the next national election must be held under a neutral caretaker government. “Otherwise, no election will be held in the country.”
Fakhrul said the ruling party leaders and activists have long been indulging in widespread plundering and corruption. “Awami League is no longer a political party. It has become a party of plunderers. They’re amassing huge wealth through looting while the common people are becoming poorer.”
Fakhrul thanked the people of the Rajshahi division as they made the rally a huge success with their spontaneous support enduring suffering and defying various obstacles and adversities.
