‘Arson attacks old strategy to pave the way for rise of undemocratic power’

Expressing deep concern and condemnation over the arson attacks on passenger buses in Dhaka, Workers Party today said that such subversive activities seem to be an old strategy aimed at paving the way for the rise of undemocratic power in the country.

In a joint statement, Workers Party President Rashed Khan Menon and General Secretary Fazle Hossain Badsha said such incidents are the outcome of conspiracy by undemocratic evil forces like they did in the past.

Menon and Badsha — both lawmakers from Workers Party — also said such terrorist activities are deep-rooted conspiracy to destabilise the country when Bangladesh along with the whole world is passing through an economic fallout due to Covid-19 pandemic.

“Law enforcement agencies become active whenever such subversive incidents take place. Moreover, political programmes are also enforced. But it is urgent to take long-term strategy rather than taking an ad-hoc approach to thwart such subversive activities,” read the joint statement.

“Otherwise, major danger might strike,” it also read.

In the statement, the two left-leaning leaders called upon all patriotic and democratic forces to wage united movement against the undemocratic evil forces.
