Govt initiated bad politics, alleges BNP
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday alleged that the government has initiated bad politics to spread confusion among people ahead of the next general election.
“After the news (on assets of Khaleda and Tarique abroad) we talked to the envoys of the respective countries. They told us it’s baseless and fake news. “What do you (govt) want to gain by spreading such false propaganda and misleading people?” he said.
The BNP leader came up with the comments while speaking at a discussion arranged by Kalyan Party, one of the components of the BNP-led 20-party alliance, at the Jatiya Press club, marking its 10th founding anniversary.
According to some media reports based on the information by Global Intelligence Network’ and ‘Canadian TV channel The National, anti-corruption investigation in Saudi Arabia revealed that Khaleda and her family members have assets in that country.
Fakhrul also alleged that the government is conspiring to hold another ‘lopsided’ election like the 2014 one keeping BNP out of the race.
He warned that the country’s people will never allow anyone to hold the 2014- like election.
The BNP leader said their party wants to join the next polls. “But it must be held under a non-party administration. A level-playing field will have to be created for holding the election in a fair and credible manner.”
He demanded the government trace missing Kalyan Party general secretary M Aminur Rahman and ensure his safe return to his family.
Aminur remained traceless since he was picked up on his way to his Savar home on August 27 from Nayapaltan by a group of people introducing themselves as law enforcers.
Kalyan Party chairman Syed Ibrahim alleged that the government is making various evil designs to suppress the BNP-led 20-party alliance to cling to power.
He urged the 20-party alliance partners to have patience and refrain from responding to any provocative acts of the government.
