BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday said it is now difficult to enforce a hartal in the country for ‘lack of democracy’.

“Our party is going through a critical time after the election. BNP leaders and activists are in fear of getting arrested or implicated in false cases,” he said.

Talking to reporters at his residence here, the BNP leader also said there is no scope to wage a democratic movement as there is no ‘democracy’ in the country.  
“That’s why it’s now very difficult to enforce a hartal and even hold rallies and take out processions,” he observed.

Fakhrul also alleged that there is no ‘rule of law’ in the country as the judiciary ‘cannot work independently’.

He said the current government has ‘destroyed’ people’s freedom of expression creating a dreadful situation in the country. “People lack minimum security of their lives.”

The BNP leader also alleged that social injustice and the incidents of rape and killing have marked a sharp rise in the country for the prevailing culture of impunity.

He also alleged that media cannot reveal the truth and write against the offenders due to the government’s control on them.
