BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said that people are facing a very tough time now as a ‘silent famine’ has been prevailing in the country due to the fallouts of floods and coronavirus.
Ruhul Kabir said this while remarks at a virtual press briefing at the party’s Nayapaltan central office.
He said that people are going through a very difficult and suffocating situation now due to misrule. On one hand, people are being oppressed and exploited by the despotic regime, the coronavirus pandemic is taking its toll on them on the other.
He said, “A silent famine has been prevailing in the country amid the screams of people who have lost their all belongings due to floods in different districts. But the prices of daily essentials, including rice, pulses, flour, oil, and green chilly, are increasing uncontrollably, putting the country into terrible danger.”
The ruling Awami Leauge government is least bothered about the public sufferings as it is busy ‘eliminating’ its opponents through a ‘repressive and vindictive’ policy.
Rizvi alleged that the ruling party has launched false propaganda against, Mejor Ziaur Rahman (Zia) family to mislead the new generation and make a narrow political gain.
Rizvi said the ruling party leaders used to spread lies against their political opponents as they have no success to project before people.
On the other hand, BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy urged their party leaders and activists to get ready to unseat the current government at any cost to save the nation from ‘misrule’ and repressive acts.
He told that we are being repressed, and we won’t get rid of it as long as this regime remains in power. Those who are in office by force will have to be removed from power by force.
