Country witnessing ‘state terrorism’, claims BNPStaff Correspondent
The Bangladesh Nationalist Party on Tuesday said the country was witnessing ‘state terrorism’ and killing had become a regular incident.
Addressing a demonstration, BNP spokesperson Tariqul Islam alleged that the state had unleashed terror.
Dhaka city BNP organised the demonstration in front of the party’s central office at Naya Paltan in protest against the killing of Rafiqul Islam Majumder, member secretary of 56 ward of Dhaka city BNP.
Tariqul, also a BNP standing committee member, said price of everything had increased beyond the people’s purchasing capacity during the rule of Awami League while killing has now become a regular incident.
He said the list of the victims of ‘enforced disappearance’ and killing was getting longer and Rafiqul was the latest victim.
Tariqul said the party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir was again refused bail by a court on the day adding that the state was not running according to the Constitution.
The BNP leader called upon all to build up a strong unity to get rid of the present government and to take a fresh vow to carry forward the movement to ‘expedite’ the ‘fall’ of the government.
Tariqul asked the government to quit immediately to avoid ‘anarchy’.
He asked it to amend the Constitution to hold next general election under a non-party neutral government to resolve the present political crisis to maintain democratic process.
Presided over by Dhaka city BNP convener Sadeque Hossain Khoka, the protest rally was also addressed, among others, by party leaders Goyeshwar Chandra Roy, AZM Zahid Hossain, Amanullah Aman, Barkatullah Bulu, Fazlul Huq Milon, Abul Khaier Bhuiyan and Abdus Salam.
