While opening the month-long ‘Amar Ekushey Book Fair-2023’ on the premises of the Bangla Academy and the Suhrawardy Udyan in the city, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina says the Constitution will be tainted and the lives and livelihoods of the people will be ruined if an unelected government assumes state power for an interim period.

All know a military-backed undemocratic caretaker government took over the office in 2007 as the then BNP-Jamaat government failed to hand over power in a peaceful manner in 2006. It is important to note that it was the BNP-Jamaat clique , which was responsible for creating the anarchic situation in the country that led to the declaration of emergency in January 11, 2007, popularly known as 1/11 changeover.

Like in the past, some elements are allegedly misleading Bangladesh’s foreign friends in many ways in order to install an undemocratic government for an interim period as national election is approaching.

Like in the past, they have already stepped up their ill-efforts ahead of the next 12th parliamentary elections in order to overthrow the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and install an undemocratic or dictator being imbued with the anti-liberation thought to power. 

Apart from creating anti-state conspiracy by appointing lobbyists in different places in the world and investing money at home and abroad, they are now also instigating the people to create chaos in the country only to install undemocratic government to power. On the other hand, country’s peace loving people and pro-liberation forces do not want to see the undemocratic government for an interim period.

Bangladesh is now a safe haven for all people irrespective of caste, creed, and religious affinity as democracy is practiced here and stability prevails in the country. 

So, all political parties, who want to assume power should stand in line with the people, join elections and seek votes instead of plotting to install an undemocratic government to state power.
