Awami League slams BNP’s reform plans as confusing

BNP’s target is to create constitutional crisis in Bangladesh, says Hasan Mahmud

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday said the BNP's politics is revolving around the confusion of its points as the party has been frequently announcing distinct points at time intervals.   

Sometimes the BNP declared a 10-point demand, and then also announced 27 points, one-point and 31-point charters. These points announced at various times have already been rejected by the people, he said in a statement. 

Quader said the BNP continues its failed attempts to survive in politics by announcing different new points at intervals of time.

The points of the BNP have been announced without considering the people's demand, he said, terming them a strategy to bring back autocratic and ill-meaning politics traditionally associated with corruption, looting and terrorism and militancy. 

There is no specific work plan in the BNP's points and outlines for public welfare but the BNP leaders are desperately trying to mislead the people, Quader alleged.

“In fact, the BNP does not believe in the outlines and points the party is now presenting as it carried out destructive activities against these policies during its period of rule,” he said.

Without being contrite about their past misdeeds and apologising to the nation, the Awami League leader said: “Today the BNP leaders are preparing the outline of confusion.

The BNP leaders are now talking about democracy but they, in fact, want to repeat their politics of vengeance in the guise of democracy, he maintained. 

He said the BNP and its allies are the main obstacles to the establishment of a prosperous, peaceful and welfare inclusive democratic Bangladesh. 

The BNP's so-called outlines and threats of movement cannot hinder the ongoing development and progress of Bangladesh, he said, adding that the country's people will unitedly resist the conspiracy of the evil forces under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.

‘House dissolving demand conspiratorial'

Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud has called the BNP's demand for the dissolution of parliament ahead of the next general election conspiratorial. 

“Their (BNP's) target is to create a constitutional crisis in the country,” he told reporters at a book launch in Dhaka.

The BNP's demand for the resignation of the government is ill-motivated as it demanded that parliament be dissolved… According to the constitution, the existing parliament will remain functional until the next parliament is elected,” he said. 

Hasan said the BNP's demand is a threat to democracy and it wants to impede the democratic process in the country. 

Meanwhile, Agriculture Minister Abdur Razzaque said the BNP will never manage to succeed in movements against the government.

“There is no scope to remove the government of Sheikh Hasina,” he told reporters in Chapainawabganj.
