Denouncing the arson attack on the Benapole Express Train that killed four passengers, BNP on Satur-day said the government is playing with fire to make political gains by blaming the opposition.
“The government has again started playing with fire. They’ve resorted to the old game as they played in the past to hold a one-sided national election,” BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said.
He made the remarks while picketing in support of their party’s 48-hour hartal that began 6m yesterday to protest against Sunday’s ‘dummy’ election.
Rizvi claimed that the ruling party tried to gain political advantage earlier by resorting to a hellish ram-page of arson.
“People believe that Friday’s Benapole Express train fire and casualties were part of the government’s old game,” the BNP leader said.
