Lawmakers belonging to the treasury and the opposition benches today categorically criticized the role of the BNP-led 20-party alliance for its anarchism and vandalism activities in the country saying that they are unleashing terrors and vandalism only to discourage the progress and development of the government.
Taking part in the general discussion on the President's speech in the House, they said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is leading the country towards development and progress in line with the dream of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Praising the President's speech in the parliament on January 19, the lawmakers said it was a time-befitting address which depicted the development picture and trend of progress even amid the frequent destructive activities of the defeated forces in 1971 Liberation War.
The lawmakers also urged the government to take up more projects to develop their respective constituencies.
"Despite the BNP-sponsored blockade and hartal coincided with the frequent petrol bombs and arson attacks on motor vehicles that killed nearly 35 innocent people and injured scores others, mass people came out to the streets keeping
life almost normal," treasury bench member Subid Ali Bhuiyan said.
He demanded of the authorities concerned to ensure the trial of the terrorists who killed many innocent people and made many families helpless through arson attacks in different corners.
Bhuiyan demanded of the government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to declare Comilla as a division along with a new district keeping Daudkandi as the headquarters.
Among others, treasury bench lawmakers, MM Amzad Hossain Milon and Golam Mostafa also took part in the discussion.
