Development campaigns won't help AL return to power: FakhrulNew Age Online
The Bangladesh Nationalist Party has said the government’s campaign surrounding their development activities will not help them to return to power as people have already taken a decision about them.
The party claimed that ruling Awami League would not be able to turn around.
BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, addressing a protest rally on Sunday said, the massive government campaign and resorting to different new tactics will not work.
He said people have taken decision and the government will have to quit following a mass uprising.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday called upon the countrymen to reelect her party in the upcoming national election in a bid to continue the ongoing national development works.
The PM made the urge while inaugurating the 3.1-kilometre Kuril Flyover in the city for traffic movement.
Fakhrul criticised erecting bill boards in various places displaying the development activities of Awami League-led grand alliance government.
Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal, Jagannath University unit organised the rally in the auditorium of the Jatiya Press Club in protest against recent police attacks on political procession and an ‘attempt to kill’ the party activist Sirajul Islam.
The BNP acting secretary general said the big bill boards claiming the achievements during the last four and half years of the government reminded him about former Pakistani military ruler Ayub Khan who had raised such bill boards to observe one such decade.
Similarly, another military ruler HM Ershad had observed his claimed accomplishments, he said adding that all had to quit in the face of mass movement.
He said none can sustain by going against people.
Meanwhile, another BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed said Awami League would not be able to turn around despite of their tireless efforts.
He came up with the remarks at a separate programme in the same venue.
He claimed that mental strength of leaders and activists from top-to-bottom of the ruling AL has been collapsed across the country.
