Participating in the thanks giving motion on President's speech in the Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Jatiya Party (JP) leader Rawshan Ershad said 'Monga' is getting bad to worse in the northern region of the country, reports BDNEWS.
Government claimed allocation of subsidies for the monga-hit people but everyone remained in the dark about who are the recipients of the fund.
Severely criticising the President, Awami League (AL) lawmaker Asauzzaman Noor told the House that in his speech Prof Iajuddin did not sound like a President rather like a petty government official. Though the government is boasting of practising democracy they failed to elect even a deputy leader in their five years' tenure. BNP should pay heed to the reform proposals without wasting time, he added.
Front ranking AL leader Suranjit Sengupta said, the state is now going through a catastrophe. Slating the Prime Minister he said when the leader of the opposition was injured in a bomb attack, Prime Minister Khaleda Zia pretended as if she were awfully anxious to visit Sheikh Hasina. But when the opposition resumed attending the House, she disappeared.
State Minister Fazlur Rahman scathing the opposition in the JS said the history of AL is disloyalty with the country men. The nation replied to their betrayal by offering 58 seats in the JS. Government will never bring in any reform, which is synonymous to entertaining whimsical demand.
Abdur Razzaque of AL said mistakes are usual in politics but BNP's plunge to folly is unprecedented.
Monirul Haque, a BNP lawmaker said though government had a few letdowns it has some outstanding achievements too. The voter list can be improved even before the election. But the opposition is making it a political issue since the AL is yet to achieve credibility with the people.
Jahid Ahsan Russell of AL alleged that the ruling party leaders were involved in the countrywide terrorism. He criticised the government for its 'interference' to save the accused in the lawmaker Ahsanullah Master killing.
