BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has termed the audio leaked by party central leader Nipun Roy Chowdhury on the day of the strike called by Hefazat-e-Islam as ‘fabricated’. He said that on that day, a private television station broadcast a fabricated audio of Nipun Roy’s conversation with one Arman, which was created through technology. It is fabricated and baseless.
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said this at a virtual press conference on Friday afternoon.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam alleged that Nipun Roy was arrested by law enforcement officers from his home and abused. Nipun Roy is a lawyer, active human rights activist and conscientious politician. The question of his involvement in any terrorist activities cannot be raised. It is completely conspiratorial and fabricated.
The BNP secretary general said there have been killings by government forces and police in the last few days, vandalism and looting of houses in Brahmanbaria by Awami agents. BNP leader Nipun Roy has been arrested for fabricating audio dramas to create Awami terror across the country. The government is making new plans to harass BNP leaders and activists across the country by making thousands of anonymous accused in false cases.
In this context, Mirza Fakhrul mentioned cases and arrests against leaders and activists of BNP and its affiliates in Dhaka, Narayanganj, Chittagong, Habiganj and Kishoreganj.
He said there were several thousand accused in eight cases in Dhaka, while no case was registered in Chittagong’s Hathazari. At least 50 people were injured in a police attack on a peaceful BNP procession. Chittagong Metropolitan BNP convener Shahadat Hossain and 24 others have been arrested there. Of these, 15 people including Shahadat have been remanded. 400 unidentified accused in a case in Habiganj. Among them, Manjurul Kibria, son of BNP leader and former mayor GK Gauch, has been arrested. 3,900 accused in seven cases in Narayanganj. Of these, 17 are BNP leaders and activists. In two cases in Kishoreganj, 64 people of BNP have been accused.
The BNP secretary general said it was a big conspiracy of the present government to file a false case to suppress public opinion. In the meantime, the judiciary, the law enforcement agencies, the administration and all state institutions have been finalized. It has now been proven that this government is conspiring to establish a one-party state by destroying all the values of democracy by using the state apparatus to perpetuate their illegitimate power. At the same time, Bangladesh’s main opposition party has once again resorted to false propaganda, false charges and arrests to wipe out the BNP.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam has called for the withdrawal of all false cases filed against opposition leaders and activists. Otherwise, he warned that this illegitimate government will have to stand on the fence of the people for misgovernance, corruption and killing democracy.
The BNP secretary general complained that the government has completely failed to take any effective measures to deal with Kovid-19. This time Corona’s attack has already exposed that fact to the public with panic. He noted that the rate of infections and deaths due to the indifference, failure and corruption of the unelected government is increasing at an alarming rate.
