‘Father steals machines, pola in a glass of wine hundreds of sorrows of Patiya people, father and son laugh’, ‘Father stole machines, pola usurer, sanctify the parliament — bring a new dawn’. Thus in the muhurmuhu slogan, At the festoon, Patia MP Whip Shamsul Haque Chowdhury and his son Nazmul Karim Chowdhury demanded action against Sharun and the general public, including the heroic freedom fighters of Chittagong and their children. Chittagong has been in a frenzy demanding justice for Whip and his son Sharun. Ignoring the police obstruction, the freedom fighters and the people staged a human chain-protest meeting in the city on Wednesday. Speakers at a rally to protest the torture and humiliation of many freedom fighters, including Samsuddin Ahmed, the organizer of the liberation war and a heroic freedom fighter, demanded the removal of Shamsul Haque Chowdhury alias Bichhu Samshu from the post of whip. He also demanded immediate arrest of his reckless son Sharon for various serious crimes against the government.
The freedom fighters and their children have also demanded the expulsion of Samshu, a new Awami League member who joined the Awami League through the BNP and Jatiya Party, from the sidewalk hawker. Protesters chanted slogans in the name of Samsu and Sharun. In the name of Samshu and Sharun, they chanted slogans like ‘Haihai rairai bichchu-sharun gele koi’, ‘Liberation war tool, let’s roar again’, ‘Not Samsu-Sharun — this country is Bangladesh of liberation war’, ‘National flag is not safe for looters Samsur’.
A few hours before the start of the protest rally organized by ‘Bir Muktijoddha Samman Sanrakshan Parishad’ in front of Chittagong Press Club at Jamalkhan in the pre-arranged city at 3 pm yesterday, some people hired by Shamsul Haque Chowdhury and his son Sharun came to the rally site. Later, Kotwali Police Station Officer-in-Charge Nezam Uddin said, “No one will be allowed to assemble there as there is a risk of disturbing the peace and order.” From there, the organizers could not come to the front of DC Hill through Cheragi hill. They were forced to walk about one and a half kilometers to Lav Lane, Kazir Deuri, Chatteswari Junction, Paltan Road and came to WASA Junction. Then there were human chains and rallies in front of the main road of the city on the opposite side of the police line. Earlier, a short rally was also held at Cheragi.
Cheragir turn: At the rally at Cheragir turn, the heroic freedom fighter Samsuddin Ahmed said, “Shamsul Haque Chowdhury has made Patia an arena of corruption.” The freedom fighter, who has been the victim of the whip family’s wrath several times, added, Samshu has taken 20 percent commission from all the big projects of Patiya. No one can talk there. Once the Jatiya Party did not have the position of Samsu, but now the big leader of the Awami League. Insulting and insulting the freedom fighters in words. I am demanding the resignation of Whip Samsur MP.
Kazi Abu Tayyab, president of the Bir Muktijoddha Samman Sanrakshan Parishad and a heroic freedom fighter, said, “The freedom fighters will continue their struggle till the flag is taken away from the whip. Appeal to the government: Protect the common people from the oppression of the people of Patiya.
He added, ‘The ACC is investigating against Samsur. His house used to be a tinshed house, now there are luxurious bungalows. If he is not corrupt then where did so much money come from? Not only that, if you search, you will know that he has a house outside the country. The former BCL leader further said, ‘Hon’ble Prime Minister has given a project worth Tk. Samshu has taken 20 percent commission from each project. We want an impartial investigation against him. Let the national flag be snatched from him. The freedom fighters are being insulted by giving this national flag to this lowly person in return for the sacrifice of the freedom fighters.
