BNP calls PM’s progress remarks ‘hollow’
BNP on Tuesday termed ‘hollow’ Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s remarks that the country is marching towards progress and that it regained its lost dignity.
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi came up with the comments at a pres briefing at the party's Nayapaltan central office.
“People have no idea from where Bangladesh is rising? They’ve only witnessed the ruling party men to make money which was never seen in the country. Many have become the owners of mills-factories, banks and insurances. They’ve established the ‘Begumganj Palli’ in Canada and made Malaysia their 2nd home,” he said.
Rizvi continued, “The Prime Minister’s remarks are hollow and worthless. We think Bangladesh is heading towards darkness, not the light.”
Citing the ‘looting’ of thousands of money from the share market and the central bank, and a stagnation in the manpower export, he said, “We want to say Awami League regained the reputation it had earned resorting to murder and disappearance of the opposition party leaders and activists during the Baksal regime.”
