BNP does not want to establish democracy: Forest MinisterNew Age Online
Forest and environment minister Hasan Mahmud on Thursday said the opposition BNP does not want to establish and protect democracy in the country, rather they wanted to create a volatile situation volatile and grab power.
‘The objective of the party [BNP], who has formed alliances with war criminals and terrorists, cannot be to protect democracy in the country,’ he said.
Addressing a discussion at Dhaka Reporters Unity, Hasan Mahmud, alleged that an Inter-Services Intelligence official accused BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia of receiving monthly allowance from the Pakistani intelligence agency.
He said that introduction of the caretaker government system in Bangladesh was a result of the failure of politicians, as well as intrusion of commercialization and terrorism in politics.
The AL-led government has blocked the system permanently and from now on, parliamentary elections in Bangladesh will be held as the elections are held in other democratic countries, including India, England and Australia, Hasan Mahmud said.
The press and publicity secretary of ruling Awami League said the politics of opposition BNP was established on ‘false premise’ and for this reason the opposition leader was promoting lies against the government by holding rallies across the country.
He said the BNP chairperson can not only not see the development work of the government, but also cannot stand to hear about it. The minister suggested the opposition leader ‘go to physicians to treat her eyes and ears, so she can see and hear.’
Naional Awami Party (Bhasani) organised the discussion with its president Mustaque Ahmed in the chair.
