Criticising the ruling government for “giving numerous facilities to India,” BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has alleged that the government is disclosing state secrets to its masters.
“Foreign diplomats have been visiting important institutions of Bangladesh’s security forces and the government is disclosing state secrets to its masters in a bid to stay in power,” Rizvi said at a media briefing held at the party’s Nayapaltan Headquarters Friday morning.
The BNP leader did not mention the diplomat’s names who were visiting important institutions.
But it is learnt that the Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka, Harshavardhan Sringla, visited Bangladesh Police Academy at Sardah in Rajshahi on Monday where the next-door neighbour is assisting in the construction of a Bangladesh-India Friendship Building and an IT centre.
Rizvi said: “The government gave corridor to India in the name of transit and permitted the country to use our seaports, but we get nothing in return.”
He also alleged that BNP chief Khaleda Zia had been harassed by the government by compelling her to appear in court two to three times a week.
Condemning the incident of walking on “human-bridge” of students by a Chandpur Awami League leader, Rizvi said that such incidents happened as the state power was “immoral.”
