Govt made JS ineffective

Says Delwar

The government has made the parliament ineffective by using it to tarnish the image of opposition leaders including Khaleda Zia, alleged BNP Secretary General Khandaker Delwar Hossain yesterday.
"Ruling party lawmakers are frequently making false statements about BNP which proves the government is conspiracies to destroy BNP," he said while talking to reporters at his Armanitola home in the capital.
Rejecting allegations raised by Awami League leader Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, Delwar said the government is cooking up stories against Ziaur Rahman, Khaleda Zia and their family members only to destroy their image.
On Thursday, Selim alleged in parliament that Khaleda was involved in the Aug 21, 2004 grenade attack and the "conspiracy" which led to last week's bomb attack on ruling party MP Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh.
"The ruling party has made the parliament ineffective for long and now they are using the House to demean opposition leaders," he claimed, adding that late president Zia and his family members are the prime target of this government.
He said the government is continuously making up false stories against Khaleda Zia and her sons as part of its conspiracy.
"Awami League does not believe in democracy. When Ershad took power forcefully and imposed military rule then Sheikh Hasina said, 'I am not unhappy'. That means they supported autocracy whether that through Baksal or by supporting military rulers," the BNP leader said.
Replying to a question, he said despite the torture and repression they want to cooperate with the government as they are doing politics for the welfare of the people. But it is the government that has to create a congenial atmosphere, he said.
Delwar protested placing ex-state minister for home affairs Lutfozzaman Babar under police remand. He alleged that the government seems to have exerted influence on the court for sending him on remand. He said Babar would be forced to make false statements during the remand.
