Awami League has never done anything good in the interest of Bangladesh, says BNP Secretary General Fakhrul

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday accused Awami League of destroying liberal democratic politics in Bangladesh in an effort to hang onto power.

“Awami League has deliberately destroyed the liberal democratic state system and started reestablishing the one-party governing system undercover of democracy,” he said.

The BNP leader also said the ruling party is trying to stop liberal democratic politics in the country to perpetuate its power, giving a rise to extremism and communalism.
