BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said the proposed budget for the fiscal year 2022-2023 will help the plunderers as and not will be helpful for common people of the country.

“Budget will help those who stole, robbed and looted public money and siphoned off the money abroad like PK Halder,” he said.

The BNP leader came up with the statement while speaking at a protest rally arranged by Dhaka south and north city units in front of the Jatiya Press Club protesting the hike in prices of essential commodities and gas on Friday.

“They (the plunderers) can now bring black money from abroad by paying 7 per cent tax and no one can raise any question against it. The ACC will not capture them, no question can be raised in the High Court,” he said.

Mirza Fakhrul alleged the incumbent government are now cutting people's pockets and making their own pockets heavier, destroying the economy and the potentials of this country.
