The BNP leader says country’s people do not want to see this government anymore and any election under this government

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday said that the party’s march procession is not just any ordinary road march, rather it is a victory march.

He emphasized that the second phase of their movement aims to realize the party’s one-point demand: the resignation of the government, which commenced on Tuesday.During his speech, he claimed: “I observed the by-elections in the Dhaka 17 constituencies. Awami League’s heavyweight think tank was on one side, and Hero Alom was on the other side. The polling stations were empty, and there was no presence of voters anywhere… The Election Commission is ineffective.”

Mirza Fakhrul also stated that according to their calculations, only 11% of the votes were cast. “But when we watched television, we saw that there were no voters anywhere.”He mentioned that Hero Alom, who is not a political figure, was also subjected to physical assault.”In 2014, 154 candidates were elected unopposed, and in 2018, votes were cast at night. Now they are putting the people of the country in danger and raising taxes.”Expressing concern about the dengue situation, Mirza Fakhrul highlighted the severity of the situation. However, the mayor of North City Corporation is traveling abroad, and the Health Minister is on vacation overseas.
