BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has urged the government to control the activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), alleging them to be the ruling party's cadres.
He condemned the attack on the Patuakhali residence of party Vice Chairman Altaf Hossain Chowdhury reportedly done by Chhatra League activists.
“We would like to tell the government to rein in terrorists, and stop repression on the leaders and activists of BNP and other opposition parties. Or else, people will not forgive you,” he said on Thursday.
In a statement, Fakhrul alleged that the leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) are getting more desperate letting loose by the ruling party leaders as they attacked the house of former home minister Altaf Hossain Chowdhury on the first day of the New Year without any reason, reports UNB.
He alleged Patuakhali Chhatra League men, led by its President Hasan Shikder and General Secretary Omar Farroque Bhuiyan, launched the attack and vandalized the main gate and furniture and other valuables of Altaf’s Patuakhali house.
Through the attack on the first day of the New Year, the BNP leader said, the Chhatra League men sent out a message that they will continue their terrorist activities in 2020 as they did in previous years.
“This attack has proved again that Awami League is a terrorist political party which wants to hang onto power by force creating a super structure of terrorism,” he said.
Fakhrul alleged that the ruling party cadres have established a reign of repression through terrorist acts like killing and vandalism across the country as the offenders are not put on trial.
He demanded the government immediately arrest those involved in the incident and mete out exemplary punishment to them.
