DOT Desk: Jatiya Party Secretary General Ziauddin Ahmed Bablu yesterday said development without good governance and justice is ‘pointless’,reports UNB. “Rape and violence against women and children don’t match with the development. It’s not possible to eradicate rape menace from the country without ending the culture of impunity,” he told a discussion.
 Bablu said, “Without good governance, development activities become useless. Similarly, development becomes meaningless if a nation can’t get out of the culture of impunity.”
He said now people have taken to the streets demanding the protection of women’s dignity. “Nothing could be more shameful than this. People want to get rid of rape menace and violence against women.”
Jatiya Party arranged the programme at its chairman’s Banani office, marking the ‘Upazila Day’.
Bablu said only Jatiya Party, not Awami League and BNP, can eliminate the rape the menace, violence against women and other unfair acts from the country. “That’s why a government, led by Jatiya Party, now needs to free people from all misdeeds.”
He said people want good governance and the rule of law along with development. “Pallibandhu Hussain Muhammad Ershad had been able to ensure good governance with development.”
