The people have lost all faith in the government, says BNP Standing Committee Member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy.
“The people have no trust in the government,” he said.” “Even when the government does good work they say – no, there must be some motive behind it.”
The BNP leader was speaking at the Dhaka’s Reporters Unity on the recent raids on militant hideouts and the agreements to be signed during the prime minister’s trip to India.
There was no need for defence cooperation agreements because no country, including India, was about to go to war with Bangladesh, he said.
“On the other hand, we hear nothing about the Teesta waters agreement or about Ganges water sharing,” he added.
“We hear a lot about militancy ... Maybe there is, but the people do not believe. They think such incidents happen before security agreements are signed with India. This is the perception of common people.”
Gayeshwar then called upon the government to accept the proposals of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and unite in order to stop militancy.
The BNP leader also criticised extrajudicial killings by police and RAB during the panel.
