The government has deliberately created a situation where no one can vote and no one can get justice, says the BNP Secretary General
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday alleged that the government has politicized the entire state machinery, including the administration and law enforcement agencies.
"I saw in the newspaper a few days back that judges were appointed on a temporary basis, and this too has been done in a partisan manner,” he said.
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader said people are being appointed to the administration, law enforcement agencies, and all other state organizations based on political considerations.
"This is how they have politicized the entire administration and the entire state," he added.
ASM Hannan Shah Smriti Parishad arranged the program at the Jatiya Press Club, marking the fifth death anniversary of late BNP standing committee member Abu Sayed Matiul Hannan Shah.
On September 27, 2016, Hannan Shah died at a hospital in Singapore at the age of 77.
Fakhrul said the government talks about democracy and fair elections after filing cases against 3.5 million BNP leaders and activists, making over 500 party leaders disappear and killing over 1,000 others.
“You have deliberately created a situation where no one can vote and no one can get justice here,” he added.
He said there is no alternative to waging a united movement to get rid of such a situation in the country.
“We all must get united and form a united alliance to save the country, its people, and restore people’s voting and other rights,” he added.
The BNP leader recalled the contributions of ASM Hannan Shah during the party’s bad times like the 1/11 political changeover.

Speaking at the program, BNP standing committee member Mirza Abbas said their party will not join any election under the Awami League government.
“BNP and the country’s people will not go to any election under this government. We will participate in the elections that will be held under a caretaker government after the fall of this regime,” he said.
Abbas also said they will put up strong resistance so that the current government cannot hold the next national election under it.
He urged the BNP leaders and activists to get ready for a movement to overthrow the government and hold the 12th parliamentary election under a non-party neutral administration.
