18 March 2017,Saturday, 17:58



BNP on Saturday alleged that the government is not forging a national unity to eliminate militancy as it is trying to perpetuate its power by using the issue as its political capital.

“Being isolated from people, the government is indulging in various anti-people activities. You (people) have already seen they (govt) are trying to hang onto power by using militancy issue,” said BNP standing committee member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, reports UNB.

He came up with the allegation while speaking at a discussion arranged by Jatiyatabadi Samaj-Kalyan Dal at Photojournalists Association auditorium in the city.

Referring to their party Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s call for forging a national unity to curb militancy, Khasru said the government turned it down outright only to keep alive militancy for taking its benefits. “They’re now using militancy as their political capital.”

He said the government usually brings the militancy issue in the limelight by carrying out any incident to hush up its failure, shirk responsibility and mislead people.

“We’re now hearing about it afresh ahead of the Prime Minister’s India tour. Now you (people) will be hearing about it for some days,” Khasru added.
