PM statement disrespect for people’s power: BNP

  • Published at 06:36 pm September 18th, 2013

Condemning the prime minister’s statement that none has the power to foil the upcoming elections, the main opposition BNP on Wednesday said such a statement is a “disregard to the people’s power.”

Addressing a press conference at the party’s headquarters in the capital’s Nayapaltan, BNP Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said the premier’s statement is unacceptable, as it was made to force people to bow down to the government. 

“Powered by the people’s determination, the leader of the opposition will resist the government’s one-sided election and the next election will be held under a non-partisan government,” he added.

Rizvi said Awami League scrapped the caretaker government provision from the constitution, only to stay in power forever.

“Cancelation of caretaker provision from the constitution was not in Awami League’s electoral manifesto, but the government did it betraying the people,” he alleged.

Claiming that the Awami League’s party symbol of boat was identified as “symbol of corruption”, Rizvi asked the ruling party leaders to prepare a list of their own committed misdeeds, for which they would have to face repercussions.

Questioning the neutrality of the Election Commission, the BNP leader said many Awami League leaders had also raised doubts about the commission’s role.
