Leader of the Opposition in Parliament and Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina Wednesday urged the administration and the police to work neutrally instead of being used as associates of BNP. She cautioned that the consequence of "partisan role of the police" would not be good in future, reports UNB.
Sheikh Hasina strongly protested against alleged BNP attacks on her workers, ransacking party office and members of religious minority community in Galachipa Upazila of Patuakhali district.
In a press statement she alleged that the BNP 'terrorists" launched indiscriminate attacks in Ulania, Chikni Kandi, Dakua and Gozalia unions damaging AL office and looting over 100 houses and shops after the defeat of four-party candidate in Galachipa municipality election on April 16.
Since April 22, Hasina alleged, BNP hoodlums equipped with deadly weapons have attacked AL workers and damaged their houses and businesses at one place or another. "Consequently, AL workers and members of the minority community are fleeing their home."
The AL president alleged that instead of arresting the attackers, police arrested newly elected Galachipa municipal commissioner and AL leader Abul Bashar and injured Juba League worker Nasir. Police also refused to register cases from AL workers.
She also demanded withdrawal of "conspiratorial" cases against more than 50 AL leaders and workers of Galachipa Upazila.
