BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday said Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader needs to apologise publicly for depriving people of their voting rights in the 11th parliamentary election.

“You (journalists) ask him (Obaidul Quader) to apologise to nation at first for resorting to blatant lies and deception centring the election,” he said.

Going to stadium, they should make an apology and then the path of discussion with all others including other parties will be created, Fakhrul added.

The BNP leader came up with the statement while talking to reporters after visiting a post-election violence victim and Jashore Jubo Dal activist Faisal Ali at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

The BNP leader talked to doctors and enquired about the health condition of the injured Jubo Dal activist.

“Balance has been swung in their favour at election. Now they (the ruling party) can’t cover it up.”

Mirza Fakhrul alleged that the entire country has turned into a hospital as the ruling Awami League ‘usurped’ the power snatching people’s voting rights.

He alleged that AL is now finding out its opponents at every district, upazila and union and carrying out repression on them.

“They have created serious anarchic situation as they are killing, physically torturing and capturing the houses and shops and other property of their opponents.”

The BNP secretary general said it is very regrettable that they’ve no minimum sense of shame as they are claiming to have a grand victory in the election.

It is gradually being revealed to the nation that Awami League made blue print that they would score in empty field and no one would understand it, but their misdeeds to tip the election in their favour have been known nationally and internationally, Fakhrul claimed.
