LDP for non-stop hartal

Edit Date:7/9/2011 12:00:00 AM


The Liberal Democratic Party president, Oli Ahmed MP, has said the opposition should announce non-stop countrywide hartal against the ruling party.

‘Usually we don’t support hartal. But the opposition has no alternative right now… opposition should announce non-stop hartal instead of phase by phase hartal,’ he said at a press conference at the Dhaka Reporters Unity on Tuesday.

Oli said the ruling Awami League had pushed the country towards confrontation by scrapping the caretaker government system and urged all nationalist forces to unite against the government. He alleged that the ruling party people were involved in the recent share market scam and demanded exemplary punishment to the culprits.

Oli, a former communications minister, strongly criticised the government for the price-hike of essentials and urged it to take appropriate steps to control the rising prices. He said the emergence of third force could not be avoided by merely enacting law; rather political consensus was needed to avert such a situation.

LDP presidium member Arif Moinuddin, vice- presidents Jamilur Akhter and Kamal Mostafa, and joint secretary general Shahadat Hossain Selim were present.
