Recent Deals with India: BNP to write to PM for details

The BNP will write to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to know the details of the treaties she had signed with India during her recent visit to the country.

In a standing committee meeting at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office last night, the party took the decision, said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

“Under the Right to Information Act, we’ll also write to the Information Commission for details of the deals. We think people have many queries whether the agreements have effects on their welfare,” he said.

The BNP does not have any objection in sharing the Feni river water with India. however, the party is concerned about the government’s delay in solving the problems related to the Teesta river water, said Fakhrul.

In the meeting, the party leaders opposed the government’s decision of appointing administrators for Grameenphone and Robi as it might send negative messages to foreign investors, he said while talking to the reporters.

The leaders also condemned the Awami League’s decision to relocate Rohingyas to Noakhali’s Bashan Char, he said.

About the recent anti-corruption drives across the country, Fakhrul said the government was just keeping the “big corruptions” out of the limelight through taking actions against some small ones.
