“The movement to topple the government cannot be stopped by arresting the leaders and activists.”
18 leaders including president and general secretary of 10 districts of Chittagong division have condemned the arrest of BNP, Jubo Dal and Swachchasebak Dal leaders and activists including Chittagong Mahanagar Jubo Dal president Mosharraf Hossain Dipti.
This demand was made in a joint statement sent to the media on Wednesday.
The statement said, arresting Musharraf Hossain Dipti cannot stop the ongoing movement of the opposition to topple the government. The current government is continuously increasing the prices of daily necessities without thinking about the people. And at this time, the price of electricity has suddenly increased. The price must be reduced immediately. No election will be accepted under party government except caretaker government. Along with that, we are in the field to collect the 10-point demand. The leaders and workers of BNP, Jubo Dal and Swachhasebak Dal are being arrested so that they cannot protest against the opposition activities. History says that no government could survive by torture, and the current government will not be able to survive either. We want to make it very clear that the movement can never be suppressed by terrorist attacks, injuries, injuries, killings, arrests, false cases. We cannot be removed from the highway.
The leaders issued a warning and said that the repression should be stopped immediately and all arrested leaders and activists including Musharraf Hossain Dipti should be released unconditionally. Otherwise, Dipti will be freed through strict agitation, the statement said.
