BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir told party leaders and workers, “We don’t have time to stay at home anymore.” Change must come. In order to bring about this change, everyone must unite to remove this terrible, monstrous government.
He said the government has started a new game with elections. Today the Awami League government has taken a stand against the workers, peasants and the people. It wants to disqualify opposition leaders by filing false cases against them. The ruling Awami League wants to cross the next national election hurdle by playing this election game.
The Labor Party held a sit-in in front of the National Press Club on Saturday afternoon to protest the rampant rise in prices of essential commodities, suffering of working people, rampant corruption across the country and unconditional release of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia.
BNP Standing Committee Member Nazrul Islam Khan, Chairperson’s Adviser Abdus Salam and Joint Secretary General Mojibur Rahman Sarwar addressed the rally under the chairmanship of Labor Party President Anwar Hossain.
The BNP secretary general said the Awami League is now playing drums ahead of the elections. That drum again. They want to retain power by playing the same game again.
Regarding the arrest of Engineer Ishraq Hossain, he said that a case has also been filed against the leaders of the Labor Party. Because they protested. Today they have started a new game again with this false case.
“The BNP is behind the rise in commodity prices,” he said in response to the information minister’s statement. If BNP can do everything, then why are you in power? Give up power. Give power to BNP. See if we can run the country.
Mirza Fakhrul said, “Today, the prices of basic necessities are no longer under our control.” What a pity for us, this Awami League government today has taken a stand against the workers, peasants and the people. Because today they are not able to create any opportunity to buy our daily necessities.
Referring to the outbreak of diarrhea across the country, the BNP spokesperson said, why so many patients are coming? Because all the tap water of Dhaka city is polluted. Line water smells and is loaded with bacteria. As a result, more than one and a half thousand people are being admitted to the hospital with diarrhea every day.
