Rab frightens people: Fakhrul
Expressing deep concern over the killings in Narisingdi on Monday, BNP Acting Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday said extra-judicial killing by Rab has made people frightened.
“People's lives and property are not safe as law and order in the country has deteriorated severely due to killings and incidents of forced disappearances. At least 30 people fell victim to extra-judicial killing by Rab in the last three months,” he said at a discussion.
Jatiyatabadi Swechchasebok Dal, a front body of the BNP, organised the programmme at Diploma Engineers Institute in the city's Kakrail on the occasion of Independence Day.
Mirza Alamgir said killers of journalist couple Sagar and Runi were still untouched and the government also could not trace the killers of the Saudi Embassy official. Six more people were killed in crossfire in Narsingdi, he added.
Referring to a statement of the Jatiya Party chairman, Mirza Alamgir urged him to leave Awami League-led grand alliance and join the people.
“Ershad said he is observing darkness everywhere. Don't stay in the dark. Please join the people,” he said to the former military ruler.
Criticising the prime minister's statements, Alamgir said the prime minister was talking like a little girl and that is why people do not believe her at all. “Her [PM] speeches reflect only revenge and jealousy.”
The BNP leader said Bangladesh was branded an emerging tiger across the world during the regime of Khaleda Zia while the country is now sinking due to the subservient foreign policy of this government.
