BNP-Jamaat plans sabotage on Human Rights Day

As the United States has not imposed any fresh sanction against Bangladesh as expected by the opposition political parties, the BNP-Jamaat terrors will reportedly try to carry out sabotage on International Human Rights Day today ( Sunday).

According to the intelligence sources, BNP-Jamaat clique has allegedly  hatched a conspiracy to carry out destructive activities in a bid to instigate law enforcers and force them to take a hard line against the  BNP-Jamaat activists across the country on Sunday.

If that unfortunately  happens on Sunday, they will use it against the security forces and try to blame the latter for involvement in human rights violations before the international community.

Sensing the conspiracy of BNP-Jamaat, police high ups have already instructed  all operational units of police to take very  cautionary measures while dealing with the unruly BNP-Jamaat activists on December 10.

Information and Broadcasting Minister and Awami League (AL) Joint General Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud on Saturday also said the BNP is now plotting to carry out sabotage centring the Human Rights Day. He issued a  warning while urging all the pro-election parties to resist such efforts.

He further said a conspiracy is being hatched to create a troublesome situation on the Human Rights Day on December 10.

Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader  also said the BNP has resorted to arson after failing to garner support for its anti-election movement.

According to the BNP insiders, the BNP is now reorganising its cadres for launching the ultimate phase of terrorist politics to halt the next parliamentary elections.

As Tareque Rahman is hatching the final round of conspiracy against the government, BNP did not announce any fresh  hartal and blockade programme for the current week.

Some BNP leaders hinted that they are taking all out preparations for a do-or-die movement at the instruction of the party acting chairman.

As part of the plan, BNP-Jamaat is mobilizing its dedicated cadres keeping the decision highly secret to dodge the law enforcers.

BNP sources said Tareque Rahman had assigned a team of senior leaders to work on the issue.

The right wing party is mobilizing armed cadres from the grassroots through holding virtual meetings among the top brass leaders who are loyal to Tareque Rahman.

They have already held virtual  meetings with around 50 organisational districts.

The BNP and its allies observed 10 phases of nationwide blockade and three phases of hartal since 29 October to realise their demand, but the moves were in vain.

BNP Standing Committee member Abdul Moyeen Khan said people will get back their rights through movement.

BNP will form a human chain on Human Rights Day.

At the same time, it is expecting fresh foreign pressure on the government to stop the election and meet their demand, said a central leader of the party, wishing not to be named.

“If any sanctions are imposed by the US, the government will definitely become weak and can’t hold the election,” he added.

Dozens of alleged human rights abusers around the world faced new sanctions Friday under a coordinated action by the United States, Britain and Canada to mark the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

But the name Bangladesh was not included which made BNP-Jamaat totally frustrated.
