News Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is now riding a train hired from India, said BNP joint Secretary General Rizvi Ahmed yesterday. “The prime minister could not board any Bangladeshi train,” Rizvi said criticising Hasina’s remark about party Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Saturday. He was speaking to the journalists at the party central office in the capital’s Nayapaltan. All the train staff, including the guard and ticket checker, is from India, Rizvi said, adding that the BNP could not board this train. The BNP leader came down hard on the PM a day after she criticised Khaleda saying, “She [Khaleda] is now riding the upazlia train having missed the train for the national election.” At a public rally in Sarda of Rajshahi, Hasina, also president of the Awami League, made the remark as BNP was participating in the upazila polls after boycotting the January 5 parliamentary elections. Terming the PM’s statement indecent, Rizvi said, “We along with the people would drive out the hired Indian train from this country through a movement.” Rizvi alleged that police were harassing the opposition leaders of the grassroots who are taking part in the upazila polls by filing cases and issuing arrest warrants. Condemning the police action Rizvi urged the government to stop it immediately. He alleged that government had been conspiring to manipulate the election results.
