Leaders of opposition political parties on Wednesday called to restore the people’s voting rights seized by the ruling Awami League.

Revolutionary Workers Party of Bangladesh, a partner of Ganatantra Mancha, organised the views exchange programme titled ‘crisis of democracy and way to resolve it,’ to mark its 20th founding anniversary at the Dhaka Reporters Unity.

Main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said that Awami League government had destroyed both politics and economy of the country.

They had also seized voting rights of the people and the opposition would continue movements for restoration of voting rights of the people, Mirza Fakhrul said.

Jatiya Party faction chairman Mostafa Jamal Haider said the country was now facing serious political and economic crisis which could not be recovered keeping Awami League in power.

He called up on all the opposition political parties to wage simultaneous movements to compel the Awami League government to resign from the power.

Nagarik Oikya president Mahmudur Rahman Manna said that without waging mass movement against the government it would not be possible to oust it from power.

Ganosamhati Andolan chief coordinator Zonayed Saki said that the people of the country were ready to take part in the mass movement to end the misrule of Awami League.

‘We want to form such a government in the country where people would enjoy their democratic rights,’ Saki said.

Gono Forum faction general secretary Subrata Chowdhury said that the opposition political parties should wage mass movements immediately and people would come down in the streets to end the Awami misrule.

Rastra Sanskar Andolan chief coordinator Hasnat Quaiyum said that people wanted to see reforms of the constitution and ruling system for a democratic rule.

Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal-JSD general secretary Shahid Uddin Mahmod Shapon said that they would form a democratic state implementing 31 point demands of Ganatantra Mancha.

Amar Bangladesh Party convener AFM Solaiman Chowdhury said that all the opposition political parties should wage movements against the government for the restoration of democratic rule.

Gono Odhikar Parishad president Nurul Haque Nur said that we must defeat Awami League government who had come to power by the grace of Indian Modi government.

Chaired by general secretary of Revolutionary Workers Party Saiful Huq, Jatiya Mukti Council secretary Faiezul Hakim, Gono Odhikar Parishad faction coordinator Mia Moshiuzzaman, Islami Andolan Bangladesh central leader Ashraf Ali Akand, Bhashani Onusari Parishad central leader Babul Biswas, Revolutionary Workers Party central leaders Akbar Khan, Bannishikha Jamali and others took part in the views exchange programme.
