This senior BNP leader criticized Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s press conference on Tuesday. Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said, the speech of the press conference proved that he (Prime Minister) wants to hold a one-sided election again without voters. He does not believe in political compromise and harmony and free, participatory and fair elections.
The senior joint secretary general of BNP also commented that the prime minister did not look favorably on the presence of people in the general meeting of BNP on October 28 for a one-point demand for free and fair elections. He complained that for this, his law enforcement forces fired bullets, tear gas shells and sound grenades, killing journalists and BNP leaders and seriously injuring numerous leaders and activists. His confidence in the law and order forces increased as the rally broke up. Because of this, these forces are carrying out more reckless and hellish rampages.
