UNB: BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday alleged that the government has turned the Jatiya Sangsad into a ‘one-party club’ by destroying the country’s electoral system.
“They (govt) have destroyed all the democratic institutions. Is it a Parliament that they have formed? They’ve created a one-party club. It’s a club of Awami League,” he said.
Speaking at a discussion meeting the BNP Secretary General also said the government has ruined the electoral system to cling to power by force.Stating that the electoral system is the gateway of democracy, he said the Parliament and cabinet are supposed to be formed to run the country through a credible election. “But they’ve destroyed the electoral system. People now do not go to cast their votes.”
Fakhrul alleged that Awami League has also destroyed the state structure by hanging onto power through a ‘unilateral’ election with 154 uncontested MPs and through vote robbery and taking votes the night before the polling date. “They have taken all steps to take all the state machinery to their favour.”
Under the current circumstances of the country, he said their party placed a 27-point proposal to reform the state and fix the state institutions.
