Now police regulates democracy: BNP

UNB

Taking a swipe at the government for not allowing the party to hold its rally in the city, BNP yesterday alleged that the functioning of democracy in Bangladesh now largely depends on police, reports UNB.
"The government is using law enforcers like its party men to foil opposition's rallies and meetings. Bangladesh's democracy is now regulated by police. Democratic spaces are determined by police," said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
He came up with the allegation while speaking at a press conference at BNP's Nayapaltan central office.
Rizvi said the government has shackled BNP's democratic rights to holding rallies in fear of losing its power. "The government fears public rallies as it has imposed misrule on people. Bangladesh, we think, has now become an ideal police state with misrule."
He alleged that government has got desperate to suppress BNP leaders and activists as the siren of its fall is ringing all around.
The BNP leader said their party's Chittagong south unit senior vice president Sheikh Mohiuddin has been out of trace since detectives picked him up from a bus counter in the city's Arambagh area on Tuesday night.
He demanded the government immediately trace the BNP leader and ensure his safe return to his family.
Replaying to a question whether their party will join the dialogue with the Election Commission, Rizvi said BNP will decide it at the party forum if the Commission formally invites it for talks.
