Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain asks party leaders and activists to wage a mass movement in order to oust the ruling party

Senior BNP leader Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain on Tuesday voiced deep concern over the price hike of essentials, and alleged that Awami League-backed middlemen are behind it.

"People have got unnerved with the growing hike in essential commodities, but the government has not been able to take any step to control it due to the middlemen belonging to their party,” he said at a human chain program in the city.

The BNP leader alleged that the ruling-party business syndicate is depriving farmers of the fair prices of their produce with the help of the administration. 

“The government is not willing to take any step to ensure fair prices for farmers as it just wants to benefit its cohorts,” he said.

Jatiyatabadi Krishak Dal arranged the program in front of the Jatiya Press Club demanding fair prices for the produce of the farmers and reduction of the prices of fertilizers, seeds, pesticides, diesel and electricity.

Mosharraf, a BNP standing committee member, said people are not getting any service from the administration due to its politicization.

He said there is no point in making any demand to the current government and the administration for protecting the interests of farmers and the welfare of people. “There’s no alternative to dislodging the government to get rid of the current situation of the country.”

The BNP leader urged the leaders of their party and its associate bodies to take the responsibility for ousting the Awami League government as people do not want to see this party in power anymore.

“We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to wage a mass movement by organizing the people of the country under the leadership of BNP. In the face of the mass movement, this government of usurper will be forced to quit,” he warned.

Mosharraf asked the BNP leaders and activists to get ready to take part in the movement and make it a success.

“I want to ask the government to step down immediately and take steps for holding the next general election under a non-partisan and neutral government as per the demand of the country’s people. The sooner this fascist government is removed from power, the better for the country."
