Dhaka, Mar 10: Ruling Awami League has destroyed Bangladesh’s economy, freedom of the press and the education system for its own sake, Bangladesh Nationalist Party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said on Friday.
“The law and order situation in the country has deteriorated. The power sector is being looted. The deal with (India’s) Adani Group will result in a loss of Tk 1.5 lakh crore. As a result of the agreement, the price of electricity will double,” said the BNP leader.
He said that the price of coarse rice was Tk 70, fine rice Tk 170 and the price of an egg has increased by three to four times. The people are struggling to make ends meet, he said.
