BNP on Wednesday accused the government of carrying out a pernicious campaign to brand the people’s ‘legitimate
and democratic movement’ as a terror and militant act.
In a statement, BNP joint secretary general Salahuddin Ahmed said, “Awami deception to get sympathy from the international community
using the screams of petrol-bomb victims exposed earlier.”
He also warned that the heinous plot to malign the ‘20-party’s ongoing peaceful’ movement by carrying out propaganda against it
through some partisan media will not be successful.
“We want to clearly state that we repeatedly presented information and documents before the nation about the involvement of the ruling
party leaders and activists in dreadful act of petrol bomb attacks,” the BNP leader said.
He alleged that the ‘unelected’ government having failed to suppress people’s democratic movement is now trying to cling to power by
misleading people through using and controlling the media.
Salahuddin asked Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to take lesson from the history analysing the reasons behind the ‘dire consequences’ her
father had met.
He also called upon the Prime Minister to stop mass killing and warned that those involved in the extrajudicial killings will be
tried after the change of power.
The BNP spokesman demanded the government quit and hold an inclusive election under a non-party caretaker government.
