BNP Chairperson and Leader of the
opposition Begum Khaleda Zia today accused the present Awami League government that it has come to power through underhand dealing and not by peoples vote. She told this in a public
while on a visit to Sirajganj district.
The BNP chairperson, Khaleda Zia, on Tuesday warned the
government not to sign any deal that goes against the country's interests and
vowed to wage severe movement if the government signs such deal.
'The government is plotting to sign deals with foreign countries as per its
commitment to them. They are withdrawing military from the hills, plotting to
award corridor to India in the name of Asian Highway and allowing them to use
the ports. If they sign any agreement, against the country's interest we will
take to the streets along with the people. No such deal will be allowed to be
implemented,' Khaleda told a jam-packed rally on the Hard Point of Sirajganj
town protection embankment.
Khaleda accused the government of implementing the election pledges made to
outsiders instead of implementing those made to the people. 'This government is
not elected by people's vote rather assumed office through understanding with
different quarters. We have been saying so till date but now their leader, the
former secretary general of the Awami League, admits it,' she said.
The BNP chief headed for Sirajganj in the morning from her Dhaka Cantonment
house to see some destitute families in Sirajganj who failed to celebrate Eid
due to extreme poverty. Hundreds of people greeted her standing on both ends of
the highway. She also waved to them. At the Hard Point, she also distributed
some relief materials.
