BNP leader Rizvi says
Ruling party men ‘take toll’ from auto-rickshaw

Staff Reporter:

BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Monday said that ruling party leaders and members are “extorting toll” from poor battery-run auto-rickshaw pullers.
Speaking at a human chain program, the BNP leader also condemned the government’s decision to re-strict the movement of battery-run auto-rickshaws, stating that it deprived the most vulnerable sections of society of their means of survival.
“These auto-rickshaws have been operating for a long time, paying tolls to administration officials, and local members of the Jubo League and Chhatra League…the government is steamrolling these rickshaw pullers,” the BNP leader said.
Jatiyatabadi Sramik Dal arranged the program in front of the National Press Club, marking International Tea Day.
Rizvi also said that the government is unethically inflicting torture and injustice on the impoverished pullers of the battery-operated auto-rickshaws.
Referring to Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader, he said the battery-powered auto-rickshaws must have been imported from some country.
“Who gave the license to import these rickshaws and allowed them to run on the road in the capital and other cities? The government itself has given these permissions. Those who have imported these rick-shaws belong to the Awami League. So, those who are operating them have become guilty?” the BNP leader said.
Rizvi said whatever the auto-rickshaw pullers earn after paying tolls to different quarters, they manage their families with it somehow.
He wondered how Obaidul Quader would understand the plight of the poor when he uses expensive watches and sunglasses. “People in this country are still oppressed and tortured. They have to resort to various tactics just to manage one meal.”
Rizvi alleged that the government has been ruining all the sectors of the country by resorting to massive plundering.
He urged people from all walks of life to unite and get rid of misrule by removing the Awami League government from power through a mass movement.
