This movement will continue till final victory: Fakhrul
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said that this government does not have the power of the people. He survives on the strength of others. Because of this he cannot play the role he needs to play in protecting his own independence-sovereignty.
He said he would not survive without a knee-jerk foreign policy. By convincing China and India, he must make arrangements so that mortars go to that side as well.
Mirza Fakhrul made this comment in a press conference at the chairperson’s office in Gulshan on Sunday afternoon. In the press conference, he presented the government’s repression of party leaders and workers across the country in the last 14 days.
He said that the agitation program will continue until the fall of the government. He said this government must step down and dissolve parliament by handing over power to an impartial caretaker government. A new election commission should be formed and the elections should be arranged. The program of movement will continue to realize this demand. There are programs across the country till September 10. After that, the new program will be announced again. This movement will continue until the final victory.
When asked about the latest status of the dialogue with the political parties to speed up the movement by forming a larger platform, the BNP Secretary General said that our discussions with various political parties are still going on. Hopefully, we will be able to finalize it in a short time and present it to the nation.
Mirza Fakhrul, citing the list of casualties and arrests in connection with the government’s suppression of government and party programs on 9 days, said that from August 22 to September 1, the whole country, especially Narayanganj, Satkhira, Patuakhali, Bhola, Barisal, Jhalkathy, Pirojpur, Thakurgaon. , Gaibandha, Chittagong, Noakhali, Feni, Khagrachari, Khulna, Kishoreganj, Netrakona, Mymensingh and several other places, more than four thousand 81 people have been accused in the case. There are about 20,000 unknown accused in these cases. Section 144 has been issued in 20/25 places across the country and attacks on houses and business establishments have taken place in 50 places. Three people were killed and more than two thousand activists were injured across the country. The number of arrests is more than 200 people.
Mirza Fakhrul said, I am calling for an end to the brutality of killing and arresting the leaders and activists of the anti-authoritarian anti-fascist government and common people. I am also demanding an impartial investigation into those who have been killed, exemplary punishment of the killers and attackers, release of the unjustly arrested, withdrawal of false cases. The victims should be compensated.
He said, if the government does not stop the evil activities, then the movement of people’s unity that has started will gradually turn into mass explosion.
In response to a question, BNP Secretary General said, Awami League has no lack of guile. They create deceptions every moment and by creating deceptions they lead the movement astray, destroy democracy. They are born in terror, they do politics with terror and they try to stay in power with terror.
Regarding the filing of a case in Narayanganj, Mirza Fakhrul said, “I have filed a case for the murder of Shawon.” We will definitely continue the legal fight against every murder-injury-murder. On the one hand, we are protesting on the streets. Will speed it up.
Incidentally, the court dismissed the BNP’s case against the Narayanganj district police.
