Conspiracy on to turn country into failed state
BNP Secretary General Khandker Delwar Hossain yesterday said his party along with the people would face the conspiracy now being hatched to turn the country into a failed state through misleading propaganda.
“We along with the people will fight the conspirators who are carrying out propaganda against the country and distorting history,” he said.
Delwar made the remarks while addressing a protest rally on the premises of BNP central office in the afternoon.
Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) organised the rally protesting “unfair and untrue” remarks made by Awami League leaders about late president Ziaur Rahman, the founder of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP).
Delwar said that being a responsible person AL leader Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim should not have uttered false and unfair comments about Zia.
“I can't find suitable words to reply to your such uncivil comments,” he said indicating Selim.
The BNP secretary general urged the AL leaders to show the documents to people, which support that Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had proclaimed the independence.
“It's known to the countrymen that it was Zia who had declared the independence,” he said, adding: “So, you (AL) should seek apology from the nation for your false statement.”
Delwar said: “The countrymen won't accept it if you try to distort history.”
BNP leaders Mirza Abbas and Fazlul Haq Milon, and JCD President Azizul Bari Helal, General Secretary Shafiul Bari Babu and other senior leaders also addressed the rally.
After the rally, the JCD activists brought out a protest procession that paraded different city streets.
