Awami League does not believe in independence, sovereignty and democracy: Gayeshwar
BNP Standing Committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy said that the government has imposed all the instruments of fascism on the people while calling on the Awami League to leave power and apologize for its past actions. In this situation, the people of the country should be freed by demanding 10 points. Share market, health sector, electricity sector has been stolen in all sectors of the country. Thousands of crores of people’s money has been looted and smuggled abroad in the name of development projects including Padma Setu. The country’s economy has been destroyed. The country is in trouble today.
Awami League does not want freedom, sovereignty and democracy. They just want power. BNP will be in the field with the people, the movement will continue. There can be no election under this government. BNP will not go to elections under Awami League without neutral elections.
He said these things at the Sylhet divisional public meeting as part of the central program of the BNP demanding the resignation of the corrupt, democracy-depriving government, annulment of the illegal parliament, 10 points including elections under a non-partisan, neutral caretaker government and the release of leaders including BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia.
BNP Standing Committee Member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy and Joint Secretary General Advocate Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal led the mass sit-in program which started at Sylhet Registry Ground at 11 am.
At that time, he announced the nationwide protest-meeting program on January 16 to protest against the electricity price hike proposal and to realize BNP’s 10-point demand.
Criticizing the foreign minister for his request to India to sustain the Awami League, he said, these words are not suitable for such a responsible minister. How stupid of a foreign minister to make such a statement. They have ties with India to stay in power.
Sylhet District BNP President Abdul Qayyum Chowdhury’s welcome speech at the end of the location program, Sylhet Metropolitan BNP convener Abdul Qayyum Jalali Pongki expressed thanks.
BNP joint secretary general and Sylhet divisional party leader Advocate Syed Moazzem Hossain Adal said that Awami League is involved in all thefts including theft of goats, theft of cows, theft of coal, theft of reserves, theft of banks. Awami League is now a safe haven for all criminals. We are asking again and again to reduce daily commodities, electricity, oil and gas. Fertilizer prices are increasing, electricity prices are increasing here again. If this government is not removed from power, the people of the country will not be able to survive. This government has lost all right to stay in power. So this government must be dismissed.
In his welcome speech, Sylhet District BNP President Abdul Qayyum Chowdhury said that the people of the country are not getting electricity, meanwhile they are increasing the price of electricity. BNP is the party of the people, so the movement is struggling on the streets to get the just demands of the people. As in the past, the common people of the country are with BNP.
