BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday alleged that the nation has got frustrated over the 21st council of ruling Awami League as no direction came from it for the ‘restoration’ of democracy and resolve the country’s problems.
“Awami League has been working for a decade to restore one-party governing system by ignoring the Constitution amid lack of democracy…the nation has an expectation that Awami League‘s council will show a path for the restoration of democracy, but it didn’t happen. So, the nation has become frustrated,” he said.
Fakhrul came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after a milad mahfil at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office.
The BNP leader said the ruling party also failed to give any direction from its council for the country's economic, social and political development, and resolve the persisting crisis.
Fakhrul said Awami League’s council only showered praises on a person and a party instead of focusing on the national issues. “Unfortunately, they’re moving ahead with their goal to restore one-party rule ignoring people’s desire for democracy.”
Earlier on Saturday, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was re-elected as the President of Awami League while Obaidul Quader its general secretary at the second-day session of the two-day national council of the Awami League at the Institute of Engineers, Bangladesh.
