Gayeshwar Chandra Roy, a member of the BNP’s standing committee, said the lawsuit was being filed against BNP leaders as well as peace-loving innocent people, despite attacks on the country’s Hindu community with the direct help of the government.
He said this at a press conference held at the party’s central office in Naya Paltan on Monday morning.
The press conference was held after the BNP delegation visited several places including Comilla in connection with the recent communal violence in different parts of the country.
Gayeshwar said, “The government is engaged in a despicable attempt to divert public attention and prolong power through sensitive communal riots.” He called for building a united resistance by cultivating non-communal thinking.
The BNP standing committee member said, “The government has no initiative to bring the attackers to justice under the law.” Instead, it is a blueprint for harassing BNP leaders and activists as well as innocent peace-loving people through various cases. ‘
Gayeshwar further said, ‘Panic has not yet subsided over the incident of vandalism in the temple. As the administration did not give importance, 6-7 hours of violence was carried out. The idols of the temple are still being vandalized in different places.
The member of the BNP’s policy-making forum also said that the Indian media was praising the government for the incident of communal violence in Bangladesh.
In the case of Bangladesh, the BJP’s vote share in West Bengal will increase, said Shuvendu Adhikari, Leader of the Opposition in the West Bengal Legislative Assembly (BJP).
BNP Vice Chairman Nitai Roy Chowdhury, Barkat Ullah Bulu, Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi, Volunteer Affairs Secretary Mir Sarafat Ali Sapu among others were present at the press conference.
