BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said that there will be no election under Sheikh Hasina. Elections should be held under a non-partisan caretaker government. BNP MPs are ready to resign from Parliament.

He said these things in the public meeting organized at Rangpur Collectorate ground on Saturday (October 29) afternoon.

He said that earlier in 1974 there was famine in the country. People were unable to eat and fell on the streets. Now that situation is back again. Awami League is now feeding rice at Tk 90 instead of Tk 10 per kg. The price of sugar has also increased. People are not able to buy vegetables. It is a sign of famine. We cannot let the country go in that direction anymore.

He also said that many media of the world, not the whole of Bangladesh, are looking at this rally. The government is not afraid of the people. Why stop the car if you are not afraid. Why shoot our leaders?

Mirza Fakhrul said that the Awami government has finished everything in the last 15 years. You have chewed up the economy, now you are chewing up the country. Awami League has stolen in all cases. He even stole from the shelter project. This government has become a global government. This government has disappeared 600 of our leaders and activists. Killed thousands of people. Arrested clerics in false cases. There are no human rights here. They cannot be allowed to remain in power.

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said that the people of the country are in a state of despair due to the increase in commodity prices. The current situation in the country has become unbearable. In township to township the present terrible tyranny and oppression have established misrule.

Mirza Fakhrul said that they are calling for a transport strike after seeing the crowd in BNP rallies. It won’t work. Whenever BNP holds a rally it will turn into a public rally. Public opinion will be created in favor of BNP by whatever obstacles there are. He said, BNP has woken up again in Grameganj. We must win this struggle for democracy. The leader who fought and brought back the country’s democracy. He put the country’s economy on a solid foundation. He has been imprisoned today on false charges.

BNP Secretary General said that all the good achievements of the country have come from the hands of BNP. Martyred President Ziaur Rahman brought multi-party democracy. Gave back freedom to the press, gave back the rights of the people.

Mirza Fakhrul issued a warning saying that no election will be allowed under Sheikh Hasina in this country without a caretaker government. Our only demand is the resignation of this government.

BNP is holding mass gatherings in all sections of the country to demand the release of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia along with the increase in the price of daily commodities and fuel, the death of party leaders and workers in police firing. After Chittagong, Mymensingh and Khulna mass meeting was held in Rangpur.
