BNP has announced a “non-cooperation movement” against the government starting today, urging the voters to boycott the lopsided national election slated for January 7, 2024.
During a virtual press briefing on Wednesday, BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said that their party’s Acting Chairman Tarique Rahman announced the movement.
The non-cooperation movement includes stopping any cooperation with the government by people from all walks of life, the administration and government officers and employees, abstaining from election duties by the officials and employees related to the election and boycotting the January 7 polls
It also includes not going to the polling stations, not providing the government with any taxes, and con-sidering whether depositing money in banks is secure or not and not by people and not appearing before the courts in ‘false’ and ‘fictitious’ cases by BNP and other opposition leaders and activists from now on.
Rizvi said BNP, on behalf of all the opposition parties who have long been in a movement, has an-nounced the fresh movement as part of their move to establish people’s rights and establish a pro-people government through a credible election.
“There is no alternative to starting all kinds of non-cooperation with the illegal government of fascist Hasina from yesterday for the sake of establishing the rights of every citizen. We call upon the govern-ment officials at all levels, including that of administration, and patriotic people not to cooperate with this illegitimate government,” the BNP leader said.
