'Suffering on highways for mismanagement'

'Suffering on highways for mismanagement'
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Saturday alleged that Eid holidaymakers are going through immense sufferings on their way home due to the 'mismanagement' of the government authorities.

Rizvi said: "There're long gridlocks on the highways near the ferry terminals. Trains are packed and their roofs are overcrowded as the government didn't take proper steps to ensure the smooth journey of homebound people." The BNP leader made the remarks while distributing leaflets of their party in the city's Gulshan area to create awareness among people about dengue. He further said, "Trains schedules are collapsing while vehicles cannot ply smoothly for the poor condition of roads and mismanagement. People are suffering due to the government's mismanagement."

He criticized the government for its failure to maintain train schedules as passengers have to wait for long hours at Kamalapur Railway Station. "Why people are being forced to wait 12 hours to catch their trains when the government always talks about development?"

Rizvi also came down hard on the government for its failure to control the dengue outbreak. "They're spraying ineffective insecticide to kill mosquitoes. It's the medicine to keep mosquito asleep for a while. When the mosquitoes wake up after five minutes, they again bite people." He said people want to know who plundered crores of taka in the name of importing mosquito-killing insecticide from abroad.

The BNP leader said the government has kept their chairperson Khaleda Zia and many opposition leaders and activists in jail by obliterating justice and the rule of law. He urged people to get ready for waging a movement to free Khaleda Zia from jail and restore democracy in the country.
