The Awami League has destroyed Bangladesh's economy, freedom of the press and the education system for its own sake, said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

“The law and order situation in the country has deteriorated. The power sector is being looted. The deal with (India's) Adani Group will result in a loss of Tk150,000 crore. As a result of the agreement, the price of electricity will double," the BNP leader said on Friday.

He was speaking as the chief guest at the biennial conference of Sylhet metropolitan unit BNP.

Mirza Fakhrul further said that the price of coarse rice is Tk70, fine rice Tk170 and the price of an egg has increased by three to four times. “The people are struggling to make ends meet.”

The government has completely broken the electoral system, he said.

Sylhet Metropolitan BNP Member Secretary Miftah Siddiqui moderated the conference while BNP Vice-Chairman Dr ZMA Zahid Azad addressed the conference as the special guest.
