Fakhrul alleged that the government has long been plundering public money and resources in the name of tackling Covid pandemic

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Wednesday alleged that the government is misleading people by talking about giving them the Covid vaccines at the union level though it could not yet collect adequate doses.

“They [government] have put people’s lives and their livelihoods at stake with their indifference, incompetence, and failures. They are now deceiving people with lies and hypocrisies. They could not yet fully collect the vaccines and bring three crore doses from India,” he said.

Speaking at a virtual discussion, the BNP leader said: “But they’re now saying that they'll provide the vaccines at the union level. These are nothing but confusing the nation. This government can spread lies very well.”

Jatiyatabadi Swechchasebak Dal arranged the program marking the first death anniversary of its former president Shafiul Bari Babu who died of Covid last year.

Fakhrul alleged that the Awami League government has long been plundering public money and resources in the name of tackling Covid pandemic.

"They’re looting the hard-earned money that people pay as tax and the remittances that our expatriates send from abroad and the money that our workers earn working in garment factories. The newspapers are depicting clearly how a reign of looting is going on in the country,” he said.

The BNP leader said though unfortunate, it is fact that Awami League characteristically represents a class of “looters”. “We saw them looting the same way in 1972-75. They’re continuing the reign of plundering for the last 12 years.”

He said the government has not only destroyed the economy but also the education sector.  “A terrorist and partisan woman has been made the principal of an educational institution like Viqarunnisa Noon School and College. The corrupt people are appointed as the vice-chancellors of different universities who are indulging in corruption in the name of appointments.”

Fakhrul said the government has been destroying all the achievements of the country by ruining its business institutions, health and education sectors.

He said there is no alternative to waging a strong movement to restore democracy and people’s rights by defeating the current “monstrous regime”.
