Not development, 2022 will be the milestone of debt: Rizvi
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has said that 2022 will be the milestone of debt, not development.
“2022 will be a milestone year for infrastructure development for Bangladesh,” he said, referring to the Prime Minister’s remarks in his address to the nation on Friday. You talk about development. 2022 will be a milestone in development. This is a debt milestone.
Rizvi made the remarks at a discussion and prayer mahfil organized by nationalist online activists at the BNP’s central office in the capital’s Naya Paltan on Sunday.
The prayer mahfil was held in memory of the late colleagues of the organization including MM Obaidul Rahman, Kamrul Hasan Shahin, Tania Soma and Shant Islam Jumman.
Rizvi said the Prime Minister had said last Friday that 2022 would be a milestone in development. I mean, how much more will the people and the country be deceived by this trend of development? How much more destitute? And did you (Prime Minister) know that the child that is being born today is being born with a loan of 96 thousand rupees behind it! You talk about development.
2022 will be a milestone in development. This is a debt milestone. This will be the milestone of disappearance. This will be the milestone of the gunfight. It will be a milestone in the disappearance of online activists. As I have said before, there is no point in telling them if there is no shame.
Criticizing the Prime Minister’s address to the nation on the occasion of the completion of three years of the current term of the Awami League government, he said that if shame is completely lost, he has nothing to say. Those who lose a little are more embarrassed if you tell them something.
And those who are not ashamed at all, if they are criticized, it doesn’t matter to them. And this government has lost that cover of shame.
Rizvi said, “I saw in the newspaper a few days ago, only 6 or 7 peon’s post was advertised in the newspaper to apply for the job.” Thousands of applications have been received for it. Among them ‘MA pass’ is innumerable. This is the development of Sheikh Hasina.
Shall we chew your Metrorail? Will we chew your flyover? You said 2022 is a milestone in development. And what about democracy and freedom of speech?
‘What will happen to those online activists who have gone missing while speaking the truth, commenting the truth, killing people in the name of‘ gunfight ’, disappearing? What will happen to that democracy and freedom of speech? ‘
“People have voted with confidence,” he said, referring to the prime minister’s remarks. You vote during the day and at night. Do you trust? Why don’t you trust the people? Why have you deceived the people and the voters?
“There is a conspiracy against the government at home and abroad,” Rizvi said, criticizing the PM’s statement. Everyone who wants democracy and wants to speak freely wants your resignation right now.
Why there will be conspiracies against you at home and abroad? Even if there is a conspiracy against this bloodthirsty government at home and abroad, I think this conspiracy is justified. Because all in all you have to give up power.
Krishak Dal General Secretary Shahidul Islam Babul presided over the meeting while BNP Organizing Secretary Syed Emran Saleh Prince, Co-Organizing Secretary Advocate Abdus Salam Azad, Publicity and Publication Secretary Shahid Uddin Chowdhury Annie and others spoke.
