BNP swipes at AL leaders for ‘widespread graft’
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday said the 'misdeeds of ruling party leaders are getting exposed as they crossed the limit by indulging in widespread corruption and plundering'.
"The people of Bangladesh have all the information about who are siphoning off how much money, making how many houses abroad, doing offshore business and deposited money in Swiss Banks.
So, don't cross the limit as Allah doesn't like it and (Sheikh) Hasina is now getting its proof as the history of your sins and misdeeds are getting exposed now," he said.
Speaking at a human-chain programme, the BNP leader further said, "Bangladesh has now become a country of gamblers. It won't be unfair if I call the current government as gambler one. The government should quit right away as what we've been reading in the newspapers for the few days."
Jatiyatabadi Mohila Dal arranged the programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club, demanding the release of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia.
Fakhrul said the government has no success in any sector of the country. "You've resorted to gambling having failed to deliver on all fronts to hang onto power. But you won't be able to sustain as the people of this country love democracy." -UNB
