 The party’s secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir announced the rejection of the budget at an online press conference from his Uttara residence yesterday, reports Jago News.Earlier, on Wednesday, BNP lawmakers rejected the budget. Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said, “The budget of Tk 5 lac 68 thousand crores passed in the National Assembly on June 30 for the fiscal year 2020-2021 is an unreasonable and unrealistic conventional budget. Which economists have dreamed of. Such a budget is expected from the least irresponsible, bureaucratic, crony capitalist government to the people. We are rejecting this budget with hatred.”He said, “Because of corona situation, there has been only one day of general discussion of the budget which is unimaginable.
However, even if the virtual session was continued, the budget discussion could have been prolonged and an opportunity for discussion could have been created. The government has hastily passed the budget to avoid criticism.”
