Fake govt's fake budget  : Moin Khan

05 June,2015

RTNN News Desk: BNP senior leader Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan on
Friday termed the new budget for FY 2015-16 'fake one by a fake'
government.

"Were they people's representative those who placed the budget? They
came to power one and a half years back through a voter-less and fake
election. They've no right to present the national budget," he said.

Moyeen Khan, a BNP standing committee member, further said, "The
current fake regime yesterday (Thursday) presented the budget. So,
it's nothing but a fake budget. I think we don't have any necessity
to talk about it."

The BNP leader came up with the remarks while addressing a discussion
at the Jatiya Press Club.

Jatiyatabadi Muktijoddha Projonmo Dal arranged the programme marking
the 34th death anniversary of BNP founder late president Ziaur Rahman.

Earlier, on Thursday, Finance Minister AMA Muhith unveiled a Tk
2,95,100 crore proposed national budget for the 2015-16 fiscal year
targeting to achieve a GDP growth rate of 7 percent.

Moyeen Khan alleged that there is no specific plan and guidelines in
the proposed budget to alleviate poverty. "Many mega projects have
been taken in the capital city, but about 80 percent people who live
in rural areas have been ignored in the budget. Did you see any
proposal was made in the budget to eradicate poverty?

He came down hard on the ruling party men for their assertion that
development is more essential than democracy and said it is a
universal truth that no development can be sustainable without
ensuring the rule of law, human rights and right to express.

Addressing the programme, BNP chairperson's adviser Amir Khasru
Mahmud Chowdhury, urged BNP leaders and activists to follow the
ideals of party founder Zaiur Rahman and spread it to new generation.
"We don't have any reason to be frustrated. People are with us."

He also claimed that the ruling party leaders and activists have got
frustrated as people are no with them. "Their body language and
attitude expose their disappointment."
