Symptoms of 74like famine in sight BNP

first_imgRuhul Kabir RizviThe Awami League government has created a situation of lawlessness by plundering public resources, especially looting money from banks, insurance companies and the share market, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party has alleged.BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has said the activists and beneficiaries of the ‘mandateless government’ are ruining the financial sector and the country as a whole.The BNP leader, during a briefing on Sunday, pointed out that the economy is in the doldrums and the people are suffering for the price-hike of essentials added to the lack of economic opportunities in society.”Reports say many people are living, banking on personal loans… Symptoms of the famine of 1974 are being visible,” Rizvi told newsmen at the party’s Naya Paltan central office.Referring to the recent scams in the private commercial banks, he observed that corruption and anarchy in the banking sector have turned epidemic.He listed the names of state-owned Sonali, Rupali, Agrani and Janata banks, and also specialised Krishi Bank, and NRB Commercial Bank and Farmers Bank that are plagued by fraudulent practices.”Those of the mandateless government have grabbed 56 out of 57 banks… Due to massive looting in the banking sector the commoners as clients are living in panic (about their deposits),” the BNP leader said. “However, the government’s ministers are now buying homes abroad.”On takeover of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited earlier this year, he regretted that the foreign shareholders of the banks were withdrawing from the bank due to such unwarranted interference in the activities of the financial institution. “Most recently, the Social Islami Bank Limited has also been occupied by the Awami League’s people,” he said.Rizvi blasted the finance minister, AMA Muhith, for failure to publish the probe report on US$81 million cyber heist of the Bangladesh Bank.The BNP leader also criticised Muhith for downplaying the figures of poverty-ridden people in the country.Rizvi alleged that the moment the absolute number of poor is increasing, the AL’s men and their families are in a competition to grab public resources.”Looting, tender manipulation, extortion and politicisation are all affecting the entire society. As a result, law and order has broken down across the country,” he said.”There is no sector in the country where the ruling party men did not try to make money from,” he added.The BNP leader also dwelt on the rising unemployment, stagnation in investment and slowdown in remittances inflow.”If the situation continues, a catastrophe is likely and the people would be compelled to lead the life of animals,” he said.The BNP joint secretary general expressed his conviction that the nation would not get rid of the situation, until the fall of the ‘government without mandate’.last_img read more

Petrol and diesel should be slashed by Rs 10 at least CM

first_imgDarjeeling: The Centre on Thursday announced a Rs 2.50 per litre cut in petrol and diesel prices by reducing excise duty and asking PSU oil firms to take a hit of Rs 9,000 crore, a step that was matched by BJP-ruled states by slashing VAT to double the reduction in retail rates.The price cuts would be effective from Thursday midnight.Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, while dubbing the Centre’s move an ‘eyewash’, strongly turned down Union Finance minister Arun Jaitley’s appeal to the states to match the Centre’s Rs 2.50 reduction of fuel prices by reducing VAT. She insisted that the Centre should first roll back the Rs 10 cess they had imposed on fuel prices recently.

First roll back that amount immediately, and then we will talk. You can control BJP-run states but not us. You don’t even give money to non-BJP states,” Banerjee said in Siliguri on Thursday.The Chief Minister questioned why fuel prices were skyrocketing despite the price of oil decreasing in the international market. “The price of essential commodities is increasing because of this. The rupee is being devalued. The price of LPG has increased manifold as well. The economy is in shambles,” thundered Banerjee.

You have to remember that if there is peace then only there can be prosperity,” stated Banerjee. The Chief Minister added that all communities are safe in Bengal and coexist harmoniously. “Bengal does not indulge in divisive politics. You all know that. You stay here because you are safe and your families and businesses are secure in Bengal,” she added.Later while attending the Siliguri Journalists Club event at the Uttarkanya Auditorium, the Chief Minister gave a clarion call for journalists to unite. “You all have to unite for your security, job security and security of your families,” Banerjee said.last_img read more
