Sheikh Hasina is sending a message of fear across the country: Rizvi
Ruhul Kabir Rizvi, Senior Joint Secretary General of BNP commented that the government was afraid and started arresting again across the country. He said, ‘Nothing can stop us. The leaders and activists of all our organizations have come to the field to claim their rights. The countrymen are already seeing the proof of it in the departmental mass meeting.
He said all this at a press conference at the party’s central office in Naya Paltan on Sunday afternoon.
Rizvi said, “I don’t know that anyone heard the words missing and crossfire during the time of martyred President Ziaur Rahman and country leader Begum Khaleda Zia.” In fact, the Prime Minister thinks the people of the country are stupid. That’s why he tells a lot of lies. Actually he is not the people’s prime minister. He is the prime minister of Awami miscreants. RAB has been made like a Gestapo force. Young people today are living in the most fear. And the Prime Minister said he gave jobs to the youth! Sheikh Hasina wants to send a message of fear to the entire country. That is why young men are being taken away.
He said, “The government called a strike with its own people to prevent the peaceful assembly of BNP.” In fact, they are not the people of the Transport Owners Association, they are the people of the Awami Association.
This leader of BNP said, “The prime minister has lost his mental balance after seeing the flow of people in the mass meeting at the divisional headquarters declared as the center of BNP.” His speech was devoid of politeness, not showing the least political politeness. The kind of speech he made about Shaheed Ziaur Rahman, Begum Khaleda Zia and Tarek Rahman in the Jubo League’s founding anniversary meeting the day after yesterday is completely possible for the people of the vindictive slums deprived of beauty and education. A person’s use of language can be understood – his family culture! If you have any kind of family background, you can make obscene, rude, indecent statements against political opponents.
Rizvi said, the Prime Minister also said – “We gave employment to the youth, they killed”. While Bangladesh is now a factory of unemployed people, Bangladesh has the highest number of unemployed people in South Asia. Educated unemployed people are committing suicide without getting jobs, kidnapping and killing young people, the example set by Sheikh Hasina has broken all the records of dictatorships in the world.
He said, “I want to say to Sheikh Hasina – the killing of many students including the brilliant student Abrar of BUET, the youth worker Biswajit, Abu Bakkar of Dhaka University, the student leaders Nuruzzaman Johnny, Bappi, Arif, Matiur Rahman M, the student leader of Bhola Noore Alam, the volunteer party leader Abdur Rahim, Munshiganj Jubo Dal leader Shaon, Narayanganj Jubo Dal leader Shaon Pradhan, student leader Anik, Benapole Abdul Alim, last day Bagerhat district Chhatra Dal and Svechsevak Dal leader Nure Alam Bhuiya Tanu including many young leaders of BNP in districts across the country have been killed by police or RAB or Jubo League-Chatra League. did Prime Minister did not say anything about this in your speech? Apart from this, how will the Prime Minister respond to the disappearance of numerous BNP legislators, public representatives, youth and students including former MP M Elias Ali and Saiful Islam Hiru, Chowdhury Alam, Suman, Munna, Zakir, Humayun Parvez?
He also said, “The Prime Minister is delirious after seeing the crowd of people in the public meeting.” What will the prime minister respond to the fact that you have obstructed the rallies so much, and ordered the violent attacks on the people and BNP activists on the way to the rally by your cherished Jubo League-Chhatra League, many of the injured are now in hospital? The bus-minibus strike is not called on Jubo League’s foundation day, but the strike is called 30-32 hours before the BNP’s mass meeting, on whose orders it is called – that is also known to the countrymen.
Rizvi said, “Since the end of Barisal’s public meeting, 28 businesses owned by BNP in Gournadi Agailjhara have been closed by the local Awami League leaders with the help of the administration. Two NGOs have been closed because the people running these NGOs are BNP supporters. That is why the owners of that NGO are being pressured to make people from Awami League as directors, otherwise the NGO will not be able to run it.
He said, “The people know the slander that the Prime Minister has done against the Zia family to cover up his misdeeds.” Even if you want to fool people, people will understand the truth. Crowds in public gatherings are unprecedented, thwarting all your efforts. Sanatan religious people are also joining the rally by playing Dhak-Dhol.
Rizvi also said, ‘The low mentality of the government is being revealed every moment. Awami administration is working according to the blue plan of suppression after seeing the huge gathering of people in BNP’s mass gatherings. Numerous BNP leaders and activists have already been arrested in the north and south of Dhaka city.
