He made the remarks at a protest rally in front of the National Press Club on Monday. The rally was organized by the Dhaka Metropolitan North-South BNP in protest of the ‘threat of assassination of Khaleda Zia by the Prime Minister’.
Mirza Fakhrul said, “I condemn and condemn the statement of the Prime Minister, who has threatened to throw Khaleda Zia out of the Padma.” Today, the people of the country are insulting and condemning the Prime Minister. This kind of language cannot be used in any civilized and democratic society.
Asked why the Prime Minister had made such a statement, the BNP secretary general said, “She is nervous now. He sees the days of his power come to an end. He can see that he will not be able to come to power. ‘
Claiming that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is bragging about the Padma Bridge, Mirza Fakhrul said, “The Padma Bridge is not yours alone, nor is it the ancestral property of the Awami League. He did it with the money he deducted from the pockets of the people. The corruption that you have done here has gone beyond all your corruption. ‘
He further said, “People want to know how much money people have spent for Padma bridge. How much money of the nation have you spent on this Padma bridge? And how much money they have in their pockets. ‘
Mirza Fakhrul said, today Awami League shouts for development. What did you develop, who did you develop? PK Haldar has done the development. Developed by the brother of the education minister, Beyai Musharraf’s brother. And each of you who are in power. They have made this country a kingdom of plunder. There is no development of the people.
Commenting that the Prime Minister has imprisoned himself in a fort, he said, “You have voluntarily imprisoned yourself.” You are afraid of the people. Do not come in front of the people. In front of the people he could actually understand their language. They could understand what he meant.
Claiming that the Awami League has led the country’s economy to ruin, the BNP secretary general said, “Every day economists say that Bangladesh’s economy is going to the abyss.” The law and order situation has led to destruction. Every day when the news is opened, it is seen that looting is taking place. And the people of the government party involved with it.
“You threatened to kill Khaleda Zia,” he added. She is the most popular leader. Who has never lost an election.
Khaleda Zia is very ill
Stating that Khaleda Zia is very ill, Mirza Fakhrul said that if she is not given better treatment now, her life will be in danger. We have repeatedly said, release him. So today I want to stand here and call and demand, there is still time to release him. Given the opportunity to go abroad. Take away the case of our 35 lakh leaders and activists. Release those who are in prison.
