BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has claimed that the country's current situation is worse than what it was during the Liberation War in 1971.

 "We never faced such a bad time. The current government has outdone all the autocratic governments in the past with its repressive acts," he said at a program at the party’s Dhaka City unit office at Naya Paltan on Friday.

 He urged BNP leaders and activists to get ready to put up a strong resistance against the government's “misdeeds and repressive acts.”

 "We have now nothing to lose as our backs are now pushed against the wall. So, it's a time to put up a strong resistance.”

 Fakhrul said it was an unprecedented incident that BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has been kept in jail unlawfully for several months having her bail stayed.

 "We just wonder how will we have our confidence in institutions now? The High Court has granted her bail, but the Supreme Court stayed it resorting to tricks and kept it hanging until the Eid vacations and thus prolonged her stay in jail," he said.

 He alleged that the government had taken a position against democracy and people to establish the rule of a particular person and a party.

 Under the circumstances, the BNP leader said, every citizen of conscience had the responsibility to stand against the government and “save the nation from its grasp.”

 He said the government had not only snatched people's voting rights but also their all civic rights. "We will have to wake up to defeat the autocratic and monstrous government."
