BNP-Jamaat’s 2001-06 misrule leaves Bangladesh 50 years behind: Joy


Condemning the BNP-Jamaat alliance’s 2001-06 regime, Prime Minister’s ICT Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy has said the BNP-Jamaat’s five-year misrule pushed the country 50 years behind.

He made the remark in a post on his verified Facebook page on Thursday.

With his Facebook post, Joy uploaded a video footage on different incidents like killing, torture, occupation, rampant price hike of essentials, looting, graft, money laundering, militancy and grenade attacks took place in the country during the 2001-06 tenure of the BNP-Jamaat government.

“The BNP-Jamaat alliance pushed the country 50 years behind. Is it reality or a mere political statement?” he questioned.

He said if people watch the video, the true incidents would come before them one by one.

The ICT adviser said Bangladesh never witnessed such incidents of killing, murder, torture, occupation, factionalism, skyrocketing
commodity price hike, looting, corruption and money laundering, the rise of militancy and grenade attacks took place during the
BNP-Jamaat’s five years regime.

He said BNP vice-chairman Tarique Rahman turned Hawa Bhaban into a parallel centre of state power and started an unofficial rule of giving bribe and percentage to him (Tarique).

Joy said BNP looted thousands of crores of Taka from the pockets of commoners by increasing the prices of essential items artificially through massive syndicates.

“I will regularly bring before you the history of the misrule of the
then BNP-Jamaat alliance government. General people could know how they were oppressed,” he said.

Joy urged the people to keep their eyes on his official Facebook
page and comment in the comment box. Many Facebook users commented on the post of the PM’s ICT adviser.

A Facebook user wrote, “BNP has shown its complete failure in its five-year tenure. During the tenure of the BNP-Jamaat government, students and school teachers were killed, journalists were tortured and corruption spread everywhere”.
