BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday claimed the Awami League government is trying to make enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings a part of the national culture. 

"The Awami government, which usurped power, has now reached the extreme level of fascism. It has taken all possible initiatives to make enforced disappearance, extrajudicial killing, kidnapping, extortion and grabbing a part of the national culture," he said in a statement.

The statement was issued protesting the jailing of 30 leaders and activists of Chattogram city unit BNP and its associate bodies. 

Fakhrul said BNP leaders and activists are being put behind bars in “false cases” to hide the government’s failure to check the rising prices of essential commodities and public suffering due to lack of gas, electricity and pure water. 

"This's a continuation of the ongoing repressive policy of the anti-people government. People are now united to put an end to all misdeeds and misrule. If power is not handed over to the people, the illegitimate regime will make the country fall apart anytime," he added.

The BNP leader said denying BNP leaders and activists bail in “false” and “motivated” cases has become the order of the day of the government. "To make such a program a success, the government has already snatched people's voting and democratic rights." 

He alleged BNP leaders and activists are being imprisoned in the “false cases” to eliminate BNP. "Chattogram city BNP leaders and activists have been sent to jail in a fake and fabricated case as part of the ongoing misdeeds of the present government."

Fakhrul demanded the release of the jailed BNP leaders and activists immediately and withdrawal of the cases filed against them.
