Ruling party men patronizing, protecting ecommerce fraudsters, says BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Wednesday alleged that the ruling party men are involved in swindling money from online shoppers in the name of ecommerce.

“Large sums of money have been swindled from people in the name of ecommerce. Who are the looters in ecommerce? Who are pampering the looters and who are giving them protection? The ruling party men are involved in it,” he said.

The BNP leader made the allegation while speaking at a discussion arranged by Afsar Ahmed Siddiqui Smrity Foundation at Dhaka Reporters Unity to mark the 20th death anniversary of former BNP leader Afsar Ahmed Siddiqui.

Stating that he had seen the photograph of a CEO of an ecommerce company with the prime minister, Fakhrul said some people are cutting deep into the pockets of people and plundering money with the “patronage of the government and the ruling party”.

He said the “ruling men” have also shattered the banking system and depleted the banks through widespread plundering.

“Every bank is now at stake. If you talk to bankers, you will get an idea about the real scenario. I have a friend who happens to be a renowned economist. He knows the system very well. He says, those who keep money in banks or are involved in the banking system are the worst-affected ones as every bank is in a state of bankruptcy,” the BNP leader said.

He also alleged that the general public are now denied loans by banks as all bank directors belong to the Awami League. “For a loan of Tk10 crore, one has to pay a bribe of Tk5 crore, while the rest Tk5 crore is hardly needed to be returned.”

Fakhrul said it is pity that some people are plundering public money and making their fortunes in the country while many people live beside roads and on footpaths as they have no shelter.

“Today we see many people building new houses of their own and buying cars though they lived a very ordinary life 10 years ago, and this has been possible because of their involvement with the ruling party. This is the reality everywhere, even at the upazila level,” he observed.

Criticizing Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader for his comment that the BNP’s plan to lead another mass uprising like the 90s is a daydream, Fakhrul said the ruling party has in fact become unnerved by the possibility of losing power.

He called upon BNP leaders and activists to get united to ensure the fall of the government through a movement. “We have to unite and give a push and then the regime will fall apart.  There is no alternative to it.”
