BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday observed that the AL-led government should resign immediately for its utter failure in every field.

“The country has been turned into a country of gamblers. It won’t be an offence if I describe the current dispensation as a  government of gamblers.

Having failed in every field, it has resorted to gambling to cling to power. But it can’t continue like this as our country is for pro-democracy people,” he said.

He also claimed that Tk. 27,000 crore had been laundered over the last one year.

The BNP leader was addressing a human chain programme, organised by Jatiyatabadi Mohila Dal, in front of Jatiya Press Club. The event was organised demanding the release of party chairperson Khaleda Zia, who has been serving a 17-year jail term in two graft cases.

Fakhrul said they expected good sense would eventually prevail in the ruling party and democracy would return to the country.

Urging the government to release Khaleda Zia, the BNP leader said: “Please, don’t create any obstacle in releasing our chairperson. Free her in accordance with the law. Revoke the parliament which was formed by manipulating votes. Hold a free and fair election under a neutral government.”

Fakhrul alleged that the judiciary was not independent anymore and claimed that it was being controlled by the government.

Accusin ruling party leaders of killing people at their own will and carrying out extra-judicial killings, he said: “Our leaders and activists are randomly picked up. Our leaders, including our lawmakers, are victims of enforced disappearances.”

Mohila Dal president Afroza Abbas, general secretary Sultana Ahmed and senior joint general secretary Helen Jerin Khan were present at the event.
