Not possible to prolong power depending on police: BNP

UNB, Dhaka
Not possible to prolong power depending on police: BNP

Accusing the government of snatching freedom of expression, BNP senior leader Khandaker  Mosharraf  Hossain on Sunday said it will not be able to stay in power for a long time depending on the police. 

 “You’ve seen how police attacked general students at Shahbagh.  Police also attacked a peaceful demonstration of Jatiyatabadi  Chhatra  Dal  and beat them today (Sunday) in front of the  Jatiya Press Club,” he said.

Speaking at a discussion, he said,  “The autocratic rulers can hang on to power for some time by force resorting to police action, but not for a long time as we saw Ayub Khan and Ershad.”

Zia Parishad arranged the programme at the Jatiya Party Club protesting the move to revoke BNP founder Ziaur Rahman's gallantry title ‘Bir Uttam'.

Mosharrof, a BNP standing committee member, said police also obstructed a rally of their party’s defeated mayoral candidates in Khulna on Saturday.

“Why do they (govt) call it a democratic country when we cannot stage our protests and when our freedom of assembly and expression is denied?” he said. 

The BNP leader said police brutally charged batons and fired rubber bullets on Chattra Dal activists foiling their democratic programme. “We strongly condemn and protest the incident.”

He said the current government is trying to suppress its opponents with repressive acts, but it won’t succeed finally. “We’ll put up a resistance against the fascist regime by forging a strong mass unity. We’ll surely restore democracy and people’s ownership of the country.”
