BNP senior leader Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan on Thursday said that their party would continue street agitation to restore democracy and people’s right to vote.
“Our struggle is to restore democracy. Democracy refers to a peaceful systematic social system. That is why in principle the struggle to restore that democracy must be peaceful and systematic,” he said, reports UNB.
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader also said they will carry out the systematic and peaceful movement together with the unarmed people to face the government’s guns and bullets on the streets.
“We’ll thus defeat this regime. We take this vow on this day. We’ll bring democracy back to Bangladesh, and we will establish a people’s government in this country,” he said.
Starting that people are the strength of BNP, Dr Moyeen said their party will oust the current illegal Second BKSAL government with that power, braving the power of guns, the power of bullets, the power of tear gas and the power of water cannons or whatever power this regime has.
BNP arranged the discussion programme at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, marking the 88th birth anniversary of party founder Ziaur Rahman.
Dr Moyeen, a BNP standing committee member, said their party does not do the politics of logi-baitha (sticks-oars). “Civilised people do the politics of BNP. This is the difference between Awami League and BNP.”
Claiming that there is no democracy in Bangladesh, he said it may take long-time to get the ultimate success, but they will not budge from their street movement for the restoration of democracy and people’s voting and other rights.
Dr Moyeen urged the BNP leaders and workers to move ahead with the movement being imbued with the ideal of Ziaur Rahman.
