Feroz Rashid disappointed over JP role in JS
Jatiya Party lawmaker Kazi Feroz Rashid yesterday in the parliament expressed disappointment over the failure of his party to play a strong role as the main opposition party in the House.
"People do not consider us as the opposition party because we cannot speak. I cannot talk even against my party, neither can vote against it due to article 70 of the constitution,” he said while speaking on a point of order.
Coming down heavily on the government for widespread corruption in different sectors specially banking, Feroz said, “Hundreds of crores have been looted from banks but nothing could be revealed in this regard.”
People having close relations with the government are responsible for looting money from banks, as a result banks are suffering from capital crisis. Hundreds of crores are being laundered through illegal VOIP, he added.
Anarchy is prevailing everywhere, on the other hand, good governance is missing in the country, he added.
“Although we are aware of this, we remain silent. We speak less. You can term us the opposition party or as the part of the government,” he added.
Pointing to opposition leader Raushan Ershad, Feroz said, “My leader is sitting here. I do not want to say much."
