Commenting that the Comilla incident was planned by the government, Advocate Ruhul Kabir Rizvi, senior joint secretary general of the BNP, said that the government did it to improve its image in the world by hiding its failures.
He made the remarks at a human chain in front of the National Press Club on Friday (October 15th) demanding elections under a non-partisan neutral government to restore democracy at the initiative of the Bangladesh National Party.
Rizvi said, “The reason for the Kumilla incident is the failure of the Awami League, lack of democracy and showing its image to the world from the place where it was forcibly seizing power.” They are showing that whatever is communal in this country, we can suppress it harshly. The Prime Minister and other ministers have been saying the same thing since yesterday. That means the events in Comilla are planned, arranged and conspiratorial. ‘
জRizvi said, ‘The price of rice in Asia is now the highest in Bangladesh. Prices of onions, peppers, oil and other daily necessities are skyrocketing. Gas prices have been raised.
He added, “The rise in commodity prices is driving up the price by syndicating away from government control.” There is no democracy in the country, no right to speak, no right to vote. On top of that, the prices of essential commodities are increasing. And the incident in Comilla has been done to divert the attention of the people of the country from this. ‘
Rizvi said, “On behalf of our party, it has been said that all the communities of Bangladesh will put up any provocation through the bonds of friendship as per our past tradition.” We will maintain our strong bond. None of us will react to the provocations of this government. Because our history and tradition is of communal harmony. ‘
Criticizing the decision of the National Press Club authorities to close down political programs, Rizvi said, “The Press Club is a place of people’s hopes and aspirations. Democrats can stand in the press club and talk about their rights. And journalists can write in two lines. But such a decision is rare. ”
He said, “One of the reasons why the BNP has been banned from holding meetings is that there will be disappearances, murders and killings in the country, but you will not be able to say anything.” Can’t human chain. Cannot hold any meeting in the Press Club Auditorium. The minimum place to talk has been closed today. ‘
Ehsanul Haque Huda, president of the organizing organization, was also present at the human chain. Mostafizur Rahman Iran, BNP joint secretary general Khairul Kabir Khokon, executive committee member Abu Naser Mohammad Rahmatullah and others.
