The government is scripting new dramas with a view to diverting BNP's movements for 'restoring democracy', said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
He came up with the remark while addressing a discussion arranged by Nagorik Oikya at the National Press Club in the capital on Wednesday.
Mirza Fakhrul said, "We've seen many incidents, many ups and downs, and repressive acts, loss of lives, enforced disappearances, murders and false and fictitious cases. We're seeing now that they (AL) are talking about arson violence. We've also seen a new drama of snatching militants from the court premises."
"Their main target is to divert the movement that has begun with the core demands of people to a different direction," he further said.
Fakhrul said the government has also started indulging in the old game of filing fictitious cases against BNP leaders and activists as part of its move to suppress the opposition.
He said a case was filed by police against 150 people of BNP for hurling a crude bomb at Karwanbazar, but no one saw taking place such an incident there. "The witnesses also know nothing about it as there was no sound of an explosion." The BNP leader said already 96 such cases have been filed against 4,500 identified and 10,000 unidentified accused belonging to BNP. "It means their old game has started. They'll carry out the incidents and we'll face the cases and thus we'll remain busy going to the court and they'll get their job done."
