BNP on Wednesday slammed the government for creating confusion over the sighting of the moon and said it happened for the lack of good governance, UNB reports.

“What happen yesterday (over moon sighting) is I think an outcome of the lack of good governance in the country,” said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

Talking to reporters after paying homage to BNP founder Ziaur Rahman at Sher-E-Bangla Nagar, he said, “They (government) first announced by 8:30 pm that the moon was not sighted and Eid will be celebrated on Thursday.

“Later, the state minister for religion came up with amended announcement around 11 pm saying the moon had been sighted.”

The BNP leader alleged that two different announcements over the Eid day confused people.

“People need preparation for Eid and its prayers but the government is least bothered about people’s necessity and their sufferings. I think those incidents are happening the for lack of good governance in the country.”

Fakhrul also alleged that there is no joy of Eid in the houses of lakhs of people because thousands of democratic leaders and activists are on the run facing false cases.

They could not go to their homes even on this Eid day.

He also said the country’s farmers cannot celebrate the Eid and festivity as they could not sell their paddy at fair prices. “So there’s no joy in their house well.”

The BNP leader said many holidaymakers were killed and injured in road accidents on their way to village home while many others could not go to their ancestral homes because of passport crisis.

Fakhrul said their party leaders and activists are also passing the Eid days with heavy hearts as Chairperson Khaleda Zia has been kept in jail.  

He also said that though BNP’s senior leaders sought permission from the jail authorities to meet Khaleda on Eid day, they were not allowed to do so.

Khaleda Zia was sent to jail on Feb 8 last year after being found guilty of corruption in two cases. She has been receiving treatment at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University for various physical problems since April 1 last. 

He said the jail authority only gave permission to seven family members to meet Khelada Zia.

The BNP leaders alleged that the authorities have violated the jail code by not allowing BNP’s senior leaders to meet their Chairperson Khaleda Zia.

Fakhrul, along with party senior leaders, went to Zia’s grave around 11 am and placed flowers.
