Strong movement to overthrow `unpopular` govt: Nazrul

  • Print
UNB, Dhaka :
Describing the current government as 'unpopular and dispirited', BNP senior leader Nazrul Islam Khan on Friday said their party needs to launch a strong movement to dislodge it.
"The current unpopular and demoralised government can't defeat us if we together with people can take to the streets against it with courage. We need to initiate a movement immediately to get a victory over
 it," he told a doa and milad mahfil. Dhaka city unit of Jatiyatabadi Hotel Sramik Dal organised the programme at BNP's Nayapaltan central office seeking salvation of the departed soul of its late president Mizan Hawlader.
Nazrul, a BNP standing committee member, alleged that the government is gradually intensifying its repressive acts to subdue BNP leaders and activists only to cling onto power. "Under the circumstances, I think we shouldn't allow the government to carry out repression on us anymore."
He claimed that people gave votes for BNP mayoral candidate in Comilla city polls braving various obstacles, pressures and threats by the ruling party as they have got fed up with the government's 'misrule and misdeeds'.
The BNP leader said the government has resorted to repressive acts as its only means to hang onto power since it is not elected by people's vote and accountable to them.
He said their party wants to join the next general election, but it has to be held in a fair and credible manner under a non-party administration.
Nazrul, however, said BNP should boycott it again if the government wants to stage a farce and mockery in the name of election.
He called upon the Sramik Dal leaders to get ready for waging a movement to force the government to hold an inclusive and acceptable election under a non-party and neutral administration.
