People’s support is not behind the government: Mirza Fakhrul
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir commented that it is difficult for Awami League to stay in power without the support of friendly countries because the government does not have the support of the people. When asked about the Prime Minister’s visit to India before the elections, BNP Secretary General said, “The government is on its knees, so it is difficult for this government to survive without the support of its friends.” They would like to see if anything is available from there before the next election.
He said these things after paying homage at the shrine of BNP founder Ziaur Rahman in Shere-Bangla Nagar on Tuesday (September 6). Tributes were paid at the shrine today on the occasion of the formation of the new committee of the volunteer team.
BNP Secretary General said that the Prime Minister leaves a lot of hope before going to India every time. The Teesta Agreement will be, that will be, that will be. But none of that happens. These things depend on people power. If the people support the government, these can be done.
He said that in the last 15 years we have seen that this government did not come to power with the people’s votes. Therefore, any agreement to protect the country’s interests in the outside world is a kind of difficult task for them. We have noticed that in the case of Myanmar. Myanmar has repeatedly intruded into Bangladesh’s sovereignty and fired, but this knee-jerk government could do nothing but respond. Similarly, this government has not been able to solve the problems that we have with India, such as the water distribution problem of the common rivers, the border killings, etc. Because they do not have the support of the people behind them.
Mirza Fakhrul said that the next election will not be held under the current Election Commission. We do not accept this commission. This election commission has been constituted illegally and illegally. We have said that the next election will not be held with this commission.
If the government during the election is not impartial, the same will happen in the past. That is, they will never be able to hold free and fair elections. That is why it does not matter to BNP or the people what this election commissioner said or did not say.
He said, BNP’s aim is only one – to remove this illegitimate government and hand over power to an impartial caretaker government. Abolish Parliament and establish a new Election Commission to ensure fair elections.
