State now ‘backing corruption’: BNP
Criticising the prime minister for her remarks on the demolition of around 300 houses under the Ashrayan-2 Project, the BNP standing committee alleged that the state is now "backing corruption".
The premier's remark on having the list of those who damaged the houses is tantamount to supporting the corruption of Awami League-backed contractors and partisan bureaucrats in the project, BNP said.
At a weekly virtual meeting on Saturday, BNP said the AL government is giving corruption an "institutional shape", said a press release yesterday.
On Thursday, the PM alleged that some people damaged the houses, given by her government to the homeless and the media published photos of those broken houses. Hasina said she has got the details of the culprits, after a probe.
BNP also condemned the statement of the state minister for information and broadcasting on removing the museum named after Ziaur Rahman at the old circuit house in Chattogram.
"People will never accept such a decision."
