BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Wednesday lamented that the country’s politicians have ‘failed’ to build a beautiful Bangladesh and ensure safety for its people.

“Why are we indulging in such vengeance, anger and massacre? Why has our Rafi (Nusrat Jahan Rafi) been killed in such repression? I don’t know why. Our politicians are supposed to give answers to the questions. But we have failed. We have failed to give you (children) a beautiful Bangladesh and ensure your security,” he said.

The BNP leader came up with statements speaking at a cultural programme and prize-giving ceremony of 10th ‘National Child Artist Competition: Shapla Kuri-2018’ at Institution of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh in the capital. Zia Shishu Academy organised the function.

“I still dream of a prosperous and beautiful Bangladesh. I dream that our children will roam freely and they won’t be subjected to any attack and our daughters won’t be set ablaze,” Fakhrul said.

He also deplored the fact that people are now getting close to technology instead of getting involved in art and culture.
