He also said the government had killed democracy, human rights and the rule of law in the country.
BNP Secretary General said, "The fascist government has arrested 50 BNP leaders and activists from around the country." He demanded their immediate release.
The government is not much concerned about the coronavirus and the price hikes of the daily commodities, said Fakhurl Islam, adding that the ruling party is rather busy arresting and torturing the opposition leaders and activists. He alleged that police arrested 50 of their men and injured 70 leaders and activists across the country.
