Current govt worse ‘exploiter’ than colonial rulers: BNP
BNP standing committee member Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan on Sunday alleged that the current government is a worse ‘exploiter’ than the colonial rulers.
“People in rural areas who had seen the British rule say even the colonial power didn’t exploit people like the current regime. They’re ruling the country destroying democracy and civilisation,” he said.
Dr Moyeen came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Rajshahi University Nationalist ex-Students' Association at the Jatiya Press Club.
He harshly criticided the ruling party leaders for their assertion that Bangladesh is now a role model of development in the world. “Aren’t ashamed of uttering it as you destroyed democracy and pampered corruption in the name of development?
The BNP leader called upon people to get united and wage a strong movement to save the country from misrule and install a pro-people government.
Speaking at the programme, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is seeking vote for her party at different programmes as part of a mockery.
“Why do you seek vote from people as the ballot boxes are stuffed even before voters visit the polling stations in the polls. Seeking vote by you is nothing, but a mockery,” he observed.
Rizvi said country’s people do not believe a fair election is possible under Sheikh Hasina-led government as he lost her credibility. “Even, one percent people do not want to go to polls under you. They want the election to be held under a non-party government.”
