Khaleda says AL creating division between ethnic people, Bangalis
The leader of the opposition and BNP chairperson, Khaleda Zia, said on Tuesday that Constitution amendment as planned by Awami League led government would create a division between the Bangalis and the country’s ethnic population.
She said the government move to change the Constitution would plunge the country into chaos and anarchy.
Khaleda was speaking at her Gulshan office welcoming seven leaders of Chittagong Hill Tracts’ indigenous groups joined BNP under the leadership of retired Lieutenant Colonel Monis Dewan.
She said, ‘You have joined the nationalist forces at the right time.’
She said more patriotic people would join BNP in the coming days.
Khaleda said that the Awami League government was out to ‘unsettle the settled issues’ in the name of changing the Constitution of the Republic.
It is going to change 51 Articles of the Constitution and the nationality of Bangladeshis, she said.
Khaleda said, ‘our nationality as well as election time non-party caretaker government system are settled issues.’
She said that Awami League was planning to abolish from the Constitution the system of election time caretaker administration so that it can hold elections under its own supervision to ensure its return to power as it knows too well that the people would not vote for them in the next election.
She criticised the Awami League led regime for its all round failure.
She said that over the last two and half years Awami League led government utterly failed to do anything for the betterment of the people of the country because it remained busy across the country in plundering and looting public resources through snatching, tender terrorism, grabbing and terrorism.
She said the government took no actions against Awami League elements who looted and plundered crores of taka from the share market for which the small investors lost all their investment.
Khaleda alerted the nation against a deep conspiracy being hatched against the country and its people.
Khaleda called for national unity to save the people and the country against a conspiracy to handover the country to foreign forces.
She called upon nationalist, patriotic and democratic forces to be united to foil the anti national designs.
BNP standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Mahbubur Rahman and ASM Hannan Shah, chairperson’s adviser Osman Faruk, joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi and Rangamati district BNP president Dipen Dewan were present at the joining ceremony.
