He claims the 2023 elections will not be free and fair under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Questioning the reason behind launching a fresh investigation against Mirza Abbas by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), senior BNP leader Gayeshwar Chandra Roy on Monday feared that the government would try to take their party to the next general election by setting various such traps.

“As the 2023 election is approaching fast, the government will work from now to suppress us and take us to a stage-managed election like the 2018 one,” he said.

Speaking at a discussion in the city, he said: “The ACC suddenly initiated an investigation against BNP standing committee member Mirza Abbas after 13 years. They [government] will lay various such traps to force us to join the polls in 2023.”

Gayeshwar, a BNP standing committee member, urged the party high command to take a prompt decision whether the party would join the polls or not under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. “We also need to make preparations to implement our plans if we don’t want to participate in that election.”

He warned that the next election would not be held in a free and fair manner even with the appointment of an angel as the chief election commissioner under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Jatiyatabadi Swechchasebak Dal arranged the program at the Jatiya Press Club, marking its 41st founding anniversary.

Gayeshwar said the BNP must launch a one-party movement to force Sheikh Hasina to quit power. “All problems can be solved only through a one-point movement as people’s struggles never turn futile.”

He said they would not wage the movement to make Khaleda Zia or Tarique Rahman the prime minister. “We’ll launch the movement to restore people’s voting rights, democratic governing system, the rule of law, and the independence of the judiciary.”

The BNP leader urged the party leaders and activists to get ready to sacrifice their blood on the streets for the sake of democracy instead of dying of coronavirus sitting at home.
