No elections in Bangladesh unless Hasina resigns from power: BNP

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said that there will be no election in Bangladesh without the resignation of Sheikh Hasina from power.

“We want to make it clear that there will be no elections in this Bangladesh until the resignation of Sheikh Hasina,” he said while speaking as the chief guest at Cumilla Town Hall ground on Saturday (November 26, 2022) afternoon as part of the central programme of holding mass rallies in the divisions.

Fakhrul said, “Bangladesh’s people now want to see departure of the Awami League government from power. Exit from power as early as you can. Otherwise, the country’s people will oust you forever.”

The BNP leader also said the non-partisan caretaker government system should be restored, parliament should be dissolved and a new Election Commission should be formed to hold the next general elections.

Regarding the economic situation of the country, Fakhrul said, “The economic sector of the country has become perforated. There is nothing called treasury anymore, everything has been looted.”

Claiming that the government got scared because of the BNP rallies, Fakhrul said the government was trying to reduce the number of people in the BNP rally, creating various ostracises, but the attendance of the people was increasing.

He said the government was lodging one case after another against the leaders and activists of BNP to prevent the gathering in the December 10 Dhaka rally and was harassing them by raiding from door to door.

Thousands of leaders and activists from neighbouring Brahmanbaria, Chandpur, Noakhali, Feni and Lakshmipur were present at the divisional rally.
