Bangladesh Nationalist Party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday claimed that the government set up projects harmful for environment in a planned way to create scope for corruption and to cling to power.
Fakhrul came up with the remarks addressing a seminar at the Institution of Engineers in Dhaka organised by BNP to mark the World Environment Day.
The BNP secretary general said there was no alternative way to dislodge the government, which snatched away people’s right to live and to have a habitable environment.
Fakhrul asked for building up united resistance for protecting the natural and political environment.
The BNP leader called for forging national unity and national movement to protect the environment.
He became critical of US president Donald Trump’s recent withdrawal of his country from Paris global climate deal.
Senior journalist Mahfuz Ullah presented a keynote paper at the seminar presided over by BNP vice-chairman Abdullah Al Noman.
