Ruling Awami League will not let the main opposition BNP create anarchy and increase public suffering in the name of anti-government movement.
The ruling party will also unveil information about the undisclosed money of Khaleda Zia after enquiry and take legal action in this regard, said AL spokesperson at a press conference yesterday.
“People demand unveiling the information about sources of the money that Khaleda Zia legalised. There should be a probe into the matter and legal action should be taken so that none can commit such crime sitting at the helm of state power,” said AL acting General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif.
The AL leader said legalisation of undisclosed money is a tactic to evade tax. Tax evasion by such a person holding the highest position of power is unacceptable for the nation, he added.
Hanif read out a written speech and answered the questions journalists asked at the conference at AL president's political office in Dhanmondi.
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has threatened to announce an anti-government movement at a rally on May 19 in the capital.
“We will face the opposition's movements through establishing peace,” said Hanif, also a special assistant to the prime minister.
About BNP's allegation of obstructing their programmes, he said neither the government nor the ruling party created obstacles to any opposition progarmmes in last 16 months of the government.
He alleged that the BNP was trying to destablise the country by giving false statements on many issues.
The main Opposition Leader Khaleda even wants to destroy sanctity of the courts by giving false and fabricated statements over judiciary, appointment of judges and normal functioning of courts, added the AL leader.
AL leaders AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury, Mrinal Kanti Das, Afzal Hossain, Sujit Roy Nandi, Aminul Islam, among others, were present at the press conference.
