BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has said that the people of the country are going to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Thursday in a festive mood, but there is no joy in the families of BNP leaders and activists.

A sad ambience is prevailing in these families as someone has lost a leg while someone has lost an eye after torture by law enforcement agencies, Rizvi alleged during an Eid gift distribution program organized by the BNP’s Kafrul Thana unit in the city on Wednesday.

“When we visit the house of a BNP leader or activist, we see that the person has been missing for a long time or was subjected to an extrajudicial killing,” he said.

These families are celebrating Eid with tears for their son, brother, father, husband, and so on, he said.

On one hand, the ruling party is driving a steam roller on the BNP, and on the other hand, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s close aide was placed on Forbes Magazine’s Top 20 richest list by looting the country’s poor people’s money, he claimed.

“In the name of development like Padma Bridge, metro rail, and quick rental, Sheikh Hasina’s looters made Begum Para in Canada, Gulshan 3 in Dubai, and a and a second home in Malaysia by looting poor people’s money.”

This is not a fairy tale; it is real, Rizvi said.

Regarding the Forbes list, Rizvi wrongly referred to Summit Group Chairman Muhammed Aziz Khan, who ranked 2,545th out of 2,781 billionaires across the world in the Forbes World's Billionaires List 2024, with a net worth of $1.1 billion. He is also the 41st, the same as last year, among the 50 richest individuals in Singapore.

Rizvi said: “Not only the BNP men but also the mass people are suffering due to AL misrule, said Rizvi, further adding that a father sold his son after failing to pay the treatment bill in the hospital and mother sold her child due to extreme poverty.”
