Fakhrul: Plot on to turn country into a failed state
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged that a plot is on to turn the country into a failed and militant one. “You’ve surely noticed that a conspiracy is going on to make the country a dysfunctional and failed one. As part of that plot, the country’s most popular writer Dr Zafar Iqbal was stabbed in broad daylight in Sylhet,” he said on Tuesday. Addressing a human chain, the BNP second-in-command further said: “BNP has been made accused of the incident without any investigation. But those who are arrested all belong to Awami League. So, a question has arisen as to whether the ruling party is plotting to turn the country into a militant and failed one to establish its one-party system.” As part of their countrywide programs, BNP leaders and activists formed the human chain in front of National Press Club in Dhaka, demanding party chief Khaleda Zia’s release. Fakhrul alleged that the country’s all sectors, including the education, economy and health, have been ruined due to the “misrule, mismanagement and corruption by the government.” Describing the government as “unelected” and “undemocratic” one, he said no credible election can be held under this administration. The top BNP leader added that a congenial atmosphere and a level-playing field must be ensured to hold the next election in fair and credible manner.  “We would like to clearly say our leader [Khaleda Zia] must be freed from jail, and Parliament will have to be dissolved before the polls.” He said their party is on a movement not for making their own political gains, but for the 'restoration' of democracy and people’s rights. “This movement is intended for freeing the country from an evil force and fascist dictator.”

‘Khaleda being deprived of due rights’

Fakhrul accused the government of depriving their chairperson Khaleda of her constitutionally guaranteed legal rights, as she has been denied bail through various tactics. “Our leader, Khaleda Zia, has been kept in jail in a sheer politically motivated false case. Bail is not being granted to her, depriving her of the constitutionally guaranteed legal rights.” He also alleged that the government is resorting to various ploys to prolong her stay in jail. Calling on all political parties to get united to save the country and restore democracy, Fakhrul said:  “Let’s wage a united movement to free the county from the grip of this undemocratic government.”
