Leaders of the Left Democratic Alliance on Tuesday called on all the political forces to get united and wage greater movements against the misrule and failures of the Awami League government.

The resolution of the central steering committee meeting held on Monday at central office of the Socialist Party of Bangladesh in Dhaka expressed dissatisfactions over the ‘autocratic’ rule of the Awami League government and demanded immediate step down of the government scrapping the Parliament that after a farcical general elections held on January 30, in 2018 and fresh general elections under neutral caretaker government.       

The meeting also expressed dissatisfaction over the decision of the Indian government for holding fresh population census in the Indian bordering districts to drive out Muslims and said the initiative would create unnecessary unrests between Bangladesh and India when Bangladesh was suffering much with 11 lakhs Rohingya refugees from Myanmar.

The resolution rejected the proposed budget for fiscal 2019-20, placed in parliament on June 13, saying it would favour only the rich and plunderers and would increase the suffering of the common people.

They demanded allocation for introducing rations and low cost housing facilities for workers in the budget.

Chaired by LDA coordinator Bazlur Rashid Firoj, the meeting was attended among others by Communist Party of Bangladesh president Mujahidul Islam Selim, SPB general secretary Khalequzzaman, Revolutionary Workers Party general secretary Saiful Huq, SPB (Marxist) central leader Subhrangshu Chakrabartty, United Communist League general secretary Mosharraf Hossain Nannu, Ganasamhati Andolan chief coordinator Zonayed Saki, Democratic Revolutionary Party central leader Mominur Rahman Momin and others.
