Prepare for strong resistance against govt: BNP

Dhaka, Jun 1 (Just News): BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday urged his party colleagues to get ready to put up a strong resistance against the government's 'misdeeds and repressive acts' as their backs are now pushed against the wall.

"We've now nothing to lose as our backs are now pushed against the wall. So, it's a time to put up a strong resistance," he said.

The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) leader came up with the comments while unveiling the cover of a musical CD on Khaleda Zia at Dhaka City unit BNP's Nayapaltan office.

Fakhrul said it is an unprecedented incident that Khaleda has been kept in jail unlawfully for several months having her bail stayed.

"We just wonder how will we have our confidence in some institutions now? The High Court has granted her (Khaleda) bail, but the Appellate Division stayed it resorting to tricks and kept it hanging until the Eid vacation and thus prolonged her stay in jail," he said.

Fakhrul alleged that the government has taken a position against democracy and people to establish the rule of particular person and a party.

Under the circumstances, he said, every citizen of conscience has the responsibility to stand against the government and 'save the nation from its grasp'.

The BNP leader said the government has not only snatched people's voting rights but also their all civic rights. "We'll have to wake up to defeat the autocratic and monstrous government."

He claimed that the country's current situation is worse than what was during the Liberation War in 1971. "We never faced such a bad time. The current government has outshined all the autocratic governments in the past with its repressive acts."
