FAKHRUL BLASTS GOVT FOR ARRESTING BNP MEN

BNP acting Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today said the government is arresting his party activists and implicating them with fabricated cases in a bid to hide its failure to control the country’s law and order.

“The government wants to shift people’s attention from the failures through arresting BNP leaders and activists, implication them with fabricated cases,” the senior BNP leader said in a statement this afternoon.

He also blasted the government for snatching BNP men’s rights to justice and added it is being done with a “politics of vengeance”. “They want to create a panic so that the BNP leaders and activists cannot carry out their political activities.”

Fakhrul also held the government responsible for the country’s “jeopardised” situation and said the law enforcement agencies have been let loose on the opposition party men instead of using them to keep law and order.

The BNP leader came up with the statement after police in separate drives arrested Savar’s former BNP lawmaker Dewan Mohammad Salauddin and Municipality Mayor Mohammad Refat Ullah on sabotage charges today.
