Tarikat Federation chairman Syed Najibul Bashar Maizbhandari on Wednesday said that BNP and Jamaat would do subversive activities later this year to destabilise the country ahead of next general elections.
Bashar said that while the country is moving forward under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina there is a conspiracy to destabilise the country by the BNP and its alliance Jamaat.
He said that he has information that BNP and Jamaat will start killing again from next August.
“They want to take the country towards another direction in August, September, October and November. Killing, militancy will increase, I am asking the government to be aware of this.”
“No matter what conspiracies they do, the next election will be held as per the constitution,” he said.
He made the statement while participating in the discussion on the thanksgiving motion on President’s speech in Parliament.
Bashar said that Hasina will return to power through next national elections.
He said that he will also be elected as MP in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
“In the next election, the prime minister will be the prime minister again. I will also be an MP from the Tarikat Federation, there is no (chance of any) mistake,” he said.
Mentioning that the national election will be held in the first week of January next year, he said, "whether BNP comes or not, it does not matter at all.”
He said that the election will be held under the leadership of the 14-party alliance leader Sheikh Hasina.
He called on all the pro-liberation forces to unite under the leadership of Hasina.
Ruling party MP Kujendra Lal Tripura said that 50 to 60 percent of Khagrachari area has come under electrification.
“Chittagong Hill Tracts Development Board through the Ministry of Chittagong Hill Tracts Affairs is trying to light up the area with Tk 217 crore solar panels. We want electricity in the areas where it is possible to reach.”
Jatiya Party MP Pir Fazlur Rahman said that earlier Begum Para was in Canada.
“Now Begum para is being established in many countries of the world. Not only politicians, but also government officials are buying houses abroad.”
Pir Fazlur said that many are buying 10-20 houses in Canada, Dubai.
“No action is taken against money laundering from the country.”
He also raised questions about how the central bank monitors.
He said that the defaulted loan in the bank is Tk 1.5 lakh crore.
“If you do the actual calculations, it will exceed Tk four lakh crore. The owner of one bank is taking loan from another bank. Actions should be taken against them.”
The Jatiya Party MP said that everyone talks about development.
“But some leaders do not see development. They visit their area occasionally. They are leaders of Awami League, but want to be elected in the future.”
Criticising the sluggish implementation of development projects and the increase in project cost, Pir Fazlur said that if the duration of the project increases, the cost also increases.
“Corruption is inextricably linked with it.”
