BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday said the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in India’s Assam is a threat to Bangladesh’s independence and sovereignty.
“We’ve been saying from the start, we’re very worried over India’s NRC,” he said.
The BNP leader made the remarks while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at Martyred Intellectuals Memorial in Mirpur, marking Martyred Intellectuals’ Day.
Fakhrul together with party senior leaders placed wreaths around 9:30am.
He said the NRC will destabilise the entire region.
He alleged that the government has destroyed the dream of freedom fighters and the spirit of the Liberation War by obliterating democracy. “They also ruined all the achievements of the nation as we’ve lost our rights and democracy,” he added.
