AL-led alliance to resist ‘subversive activities’

The Awami League-led 14-party alliance will constitute committees in every ward and localities across the country ‘against subversive acts’ to handover to the law enforcing agencies those who would be found involved in acts of terrorism in the name of blockade programme.
Awami League (AL) presidium member and spokesman of the 14-party alliance Mohammad Nasim disclosed this to reporters emerging from a meeting of the 14-party alliance at the political office of AL president Sheikh Hasina at Dhanmondi in the city.He said, “In accordance with the announcement of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, anti-subversive acts committees will be constituted across the country including Dhaka. The committees will create awareness among people against all acts of anarchy. The members of these committees will also extend cooperation to the law enforcing agencies.”
Calling upon the law enforcers to be tougher in facing all the activities of terrorism, Mohammad Nasim, also Health and Family Welfare Minister, said, “Question does not arise for any concession to those creators of anarchy. Those who resort to falsehood should not get any concession.”
The minister held BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia responsible for clandestine attacks in the name of siege programme saying: “At her directives, the terrorists of Jamaat-Shibir have been mounting the attack. By staging a drama of being under siege, she has given money to the terrorists to take to the field and they have been torching people to death. Can it be termed as a movement? It’s a cowardice act, nothing else. In reality, Begum Zia is desperate to save the Jamaat leaders.”
The senior AL leader said those who have been causing harm to the country by calling destructive programmes like hartal (shutdown) and siege should not have any democratic right. “We would like to ask BNP leadership to discard terrorism and stop playing broken records of falsehood. We shall request the administration to be tougher on those terror-mongers and allow no concession to them,” the 14-party spokesman added.
Mohammad Nasim said, “Normalcy has been prevailing in the country but a sense of panic is persisting among the people. The terrorists have no party. Though workers of Khaleda have not taken to the street, terrorists are ruling the roost. – BSS
