Step aside right now

Dr Kamal to Hasina
UNB, Dhaka

Describing Sheikh Hasina as a ‘self-proclaimed’ Prime Minister, not an elected one, Jatiya Oikyafront convener Dr Kamal Hossain yesterday called upon her to free the country from ‘misrule’ by quitting power immediately.

“You (Hasina) are a dramatist, not a leader. You thanked people on December 30 (last year) for electing you for five years. You’re a self-proclaimed Prime Minister. No one elected you for the third term. I myself will testify that no one elected you,” he said.

Speaking at a discussion, Dr Kamal further said, “How long will you go on the wrong path with lies? Try to understand bad consequences of such lies, and keep cool to free the country from misrule before time runs out fast.”

Jatiya Oikyafront arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club protesting the killing of Buet student Abrar Fahad.

Dr Kamal, also the President of Gonoforum, said the current government can stay in power for the time being by resorting to repressive acts. “But you won’t be spared for such acts. So, step aside as early as possible in a decent way and announce to hold a new election.”

Reiterating that people are the owners of the country as per the Constitution, he said they will decide which party should be there in power through a fair and credible election under the neutral Election Commission.

The Oikyafront chief also criticised the government for not giving opposition parties the permission to hold rallies and meetings.

He said the constitution gives the political parties the right to hold rallies and express their opinion. “Those who are depriving people of exercising such right and obstructing rallies are committing treason, and the punishment for sedition will be a severe one.”

Dr Kamal warned that they will make a list of those violating people’s rights and put them on trial when their alliance is voted to power.
