Mirza Fakhrul says Awami League destroys country’s political structure
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday alleged that the current Awami League government has destroyed the political structure of the country by revoking the caretaker government system.
“Awami League has destroyed the political structure that we established in 1991 through many setbacks and struggles. As per that political structure, the government would be formed through a democratic election,” he said.
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader said Awami League enforced hartal for 173 days with a demand for the introduction of the caretaker government, according to UNB.
He said the then BNP government in 1996 introduced the caretaker government system and four credible and acceptable elections were held under it. “But when they (AL) could understand that people would not vote for them for their misdeeds from 2009-2011, they annulled the caretaker government system with the help of Justice Khairul Haque.”
Later, he said the government has politicised the judiciary which now dictates what the political structure of the country will be. “Thus they destroyed our political structure.”
