People won't buy AL's attempt to shift blame: Khandaker Mosharraf
Responding to the Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader's comment criticising BNP's state reform proposals, BNP standing committee member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain said the ruling party wants to shift blame to others.
"Awami league earned a bad name as it destroyed the country's judiciary and democratic structures. But now they [AL] are saying that the state was collapsed during BNP's regime. People will not believe such an attempt to shift the blame to others," he said.
Mosharraf made the remark while addressing a human chain programme in front of the party's Nayapaltan headquarters, organised to demand the release of party leaders and activists.
Earlier in the day, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader termed the BNP's 27-point state reform proposal nothing but a "stunt" to mislead people of the country. He also referred to the BNP's proposal for state reform as "laughable".
Mosharraf said the government arrested opposition men to foil the December 10 rally in Dhaka but all their attempts went in vain.
Amanullah Aman, convener of Dhaka North city unit BNP, said no election would be held in the country under a partisan government.
Mohila Dal organised the human chain where its president Afroza Abbas demanded immediate and unconditional release of detained leaders and activists.
Helen Jerin Khan, acting general secretary of Mohila Dal, conducted the rally.
