BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir alleges that  the current government has no accountability to people, and it is working in a free style.

"Bangladesh has now turned into a failed state where there is no accountability. The government is acting as per its whims," he said while addressing a meeting of Ruhia thana unit BNP in Sadar upazila yesterday.

The BNP leader said the government has created a suffocating situation for those who believe in democracy through its repressive acts.

" We shouldn't forget that we got Bangladesh through a struggle. We must carry out a strong struggle now to restore democracy in the country," he told his party colleagues.

He said the current parliament is illegal as it was not formed with people's vote.

"This is unfortunate that we could not protect the people's voting rights."

The BNP leader said the government is using all the state machinery to hang on to power, snatching all the rights of the people.

About the current budget, he said it is not a pro-people budget as it was designed only to protect the interests of a quarter.

He said huge money has been allocated in the budget only to provide salaries, and facilities to government officials, and employees.
