Fakhrul: Government must make public military deal with India
He came up with the call in a party programme in Thakurgaon on Friday. Fakhrul said: “Through newspapers, I learnt that Bangladesh and India are going to seal security and military deals. It is quite normal to sign such deals. But, keeping the countrymen in the dark about such agreements cannot be accepted.” The people have the rights to know what kind of deal it is, he said, adding, it is mandatory for the government to publish the matter to all. Ever since taking office, the ruling government never let people know about the deals it has signed so far, he alleged. He also criticised the ruling party’s role in resolving the crisis over the water sharing deal with India. The BNP leader, however, claimed that Awami League had established militancy in the country, and all the terrorist attacks took place during its tenure. “It [Awami League] has introduced Bangladesh as a terrorist state to the outer world,” he said.
