Wind of change blows across country thru' victory: Menon
Workers' Party of Bangladesh President Rashed Khan Menon at a meeting yesterday said the landslide victory of the AL-grand alliance in the 9th parliamentary election ushered a wind of change in the country.
Menon, also a lawmaker, said this at a reception programme at the RC Majumdar auditorium at Dhaka University campus.
Bangladesh Chhatra Moitri hosted the reception for Menon and another lawmaker Fazle Hossain Badsha.
“The young generation of the country has fulfilled their dreams through the general election and the victory of 'change' would be implemented through their deeds,” said Menon.
“Student fraternities should end the political culture of 'capture' or 'extortion' in the post-election period and work together to establish a prosperous, non-communal and non-violent Bangladesh,” he added.
He further said that it is time to fight poverty and obtain economic emancipation and social justice.
Badsha said corruption and terrorism grabbed the country having their patronisers in the ruling power during the previous political regime.
“The demands of the workers and deprived people would now be placed in the parliament,” he added.
Student leaders at the programme demanded immediate trial of war criminals.
