Khaleda asks govt to step down

Ref: BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Sunday asked the Awami League government to step down immediately instead of piling up misdeeds and failure.

“No master will be able to protect this government,” she said adding her party will run the country again forming the next government and all the wrongdoers will be tried then.

“All the documents of your [government] wrongdoings are now in our hand,” she said while addressing a rally at Mahanagar Natya Mancha organised by Jatiyatabadi Juba Dal to mark its 32nd founding anniversary.

Khaleda, also opposition leader in the parliament, urged the judiciary to act neutrally.

Urging Juba Dal men to remain alert, the former premier claimed that the AL-led grand alliance government is hatching conspiracy to make the country a province.

Khaleda said they [government] wanted to destroy BDR and now they are trying to bring armed forces and people face-to-face but they won’t be successful.

Terming the government inefficient she said it has no right to continue in power as it has absolutely failed to run the country.

Criticising the government’s initiative to establish border market jointly with India, the BNP chairperson said government is implementing the pledges, which they made to the foreign forces.

Hinting at India, the opposition leader said they won’t give Bangladesh tax and transit fee for using land and port though earlier the government said Bangladesh will earn thousands crore of taka from this sector.

Party standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain and Abdul Moyeen Khan, joint secretary general Amanullah Aman, among others, addressed the meeting with Juba Dal president Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal in the chair.

Alal in his speech asked the government to stop the move regarding Khaleda Zia’s cantonment house.

“We will build museum at Sudhasadan [personal residence of the prime minister] and flats for destitute people at Dhanmondi 32 [the historical house from where the Father of the Nation led the nation for independence] if the conspiracy [government move regarding the cantonment house which was allotted to Khaleda by the then army chief in 1981] is not stopped,” he said.

He also said people will resist the conspiracy to arrest Khaleda’s son Arafat Rahman Koko.
