UNB, Dhaka :
BNP on Monday alleged that the government is trying to keep the party away from observing its political programmes by resorting to a 'dual policy' for fear of losing power.
We're denied permission for holding our rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on
January 7. It's nothing new as police on seven occasions didn't allow us to hold our rallies in the capital since January 5, 2014. You (govt) don't allow us to take to the streets and form human chain programmes and instead drive away our leaders and activists by charging batons, said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
Speaking at a press conference at BNP's Nayapaltan central office, he further said, But you're (AL) regularly taking to the streets. You staged rallies at 2/3 venues in Dhaka and took out processions on January 5 last. As you don't allow the biggest political party to hold any programme, you can tell police that there're two rules in the country-one for Awami League and the other for the rest of the people.
BNP had announced to hold a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on January 7 to mark 10th parliamentary elections day as what it says the democracy killing day, but Dhaka Metropolitan Police did not permit it to stage the programme.
Fakhrul thanked Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader for his comments that BNP is weak in movement, not in people's support. He (Quader) deserves thanks for speaking the truth. He realised people will get a day to exercise their voting rights and will show their power. That's the democracy.
He said, the ruling party is keeping BNP away from getting organised, holding rallies and bringing out precessions as it knows very well about the party's popularity. The government fears BNP as they know if BNP men once take to the streets, it will be very difficult for them to protect their throne.
