BNP men ready to take bullets: Mirza Abbas13 September 2022
Staff Reporter :
BNP Standing Committee Member Mirza Abbas on Monday said that their party men will rather take bullets in their chest, but will not leave the streets until the fall of the current government.
"We will take bullets in our chests but would not leave the streets until our demand is met," he said while speaking at a rally in the city's Segunbagicha area in the capital.
"If the law enforcers fire on our leaders and activists, we will come up with a different strategy of movement as per the action. The movement can't go on always the same way, but we never leave the streets until the regime is ousted," the BNP senior leader said.
"We will reach a situation someday when processions and rallies will be held at every lane and locality of Dhaka, but you (govt) won't be able to resist it. We want to see how many police you have and how many activists we have. We won't spare if anyone tries to shoot us," Mirza Abbas said.
The BNP leader alleged that their party has been obstructed from holding rallies by closing roads and traditional venues like Press Club and Paltan.
"We won't keep the streets only in your hands. We will surely take over the streets. The leaders of BNP and its student and youth wings have learned how to receive bullets. So, there is nothing to be worried," he said.
As part of BNP's plan to hold 16 rallies in the capital in the current month, Shahbagh and Ramna zones of the party's Dhaka south city unit arranged the programme in protest against the increase in prices of essentials, fuel and transport fares and the killing of three opposition leaders in police firing in Bhola and Narayangonj.
