The Bangladesh Nationalist Party on Friday said that people were ‘frustrated’ as there was no indication of negotiation in the prime minister’s speech for resolving the present political crisis centring the next general election.
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, in his instant reaction to prime minister’s address to the nation, said that the speech undoubtedly was pushing the country to further ‘crisis.’
Prime minister Sheikh Hasina addressed the nation Friday evening marking completion of four years in the office of the incumbent government.
‘We found neither any sign of political negotiations nor any symptom of resolving the crisis in the speech of the prime minister,’ he told reports in front of the party chairperson’s Gulshan office.
Fakhrul said that people thought that Hasina would speak about how to make the next election meaningful overcoming the prevailing political crisis.
Asked about prime minister’s remark that the election would be held according to the constitution, Fakhrul retorted with another question asking who had amended the constitution.
Responding to the prime minister’s claim about the country’s forward march on the highway of development, he said that it was the government’s forward march on the highway of ‘corruption’.
He said that the party would give formal reaction to the prime minister’s speech at BNP chief’s Gulshan office today.
