BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday said the governing Awami League (AL) is now trying to flee, as it has been ‘isolated from people and become politically bankrupt’.
“The fall of Awami League and the government is imminent. Sensing their defeat, they are trying to flee. They are desperate to suppress BNP and people,” he said.The BNP leader came up with the statements, as he was exchanging views with leaders and activists of Jatiyatabadi Muktijoddha Dal at a meeting at BNP central office in Nayapaltan of the capital.
“Bangladesh is now passing through a critical period. The next few days will determine whether the country’s democracy will exist or not. A monstrous government is repressing people with the help of state machinery,” Fakhrul said.
He alleged that the government is trying to hold a ‘so-called’ general election. There is no alternative to forge national unity to get rid of the critical situation, he said.
“We need to keep it in mind that a greater unity will not be created if we don’t make some sacrifices,” he said.
He said that BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia instructed to forge greater unity with all political parties and organisations before she went to jail.
