Gonoforum President Dr Kamal Hossain speaks at a discussion in Dhaka on Saturday (Aug 24).The people have been deprived of their ownership of the country and voting rights using the name and portraits of Bangabandhu Mujibur Rahman, says Gonoforum President Dr Kamal Hossain.
"They (Awami League) are using the name and portraits of Bangabandhu, but indulging in acts contrary to his ideals. I think it's the most grievous crime to work against Bangabandhu's ideal and dreams using his name," he said on Saturday (Aug 24).
Dr Kamal, who is also the convener of Jatiya Okiya Front, was speaking at a discussion in Dhaka to mark the National Mourning day commemorating the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Dr Kamal, a close associate of Bangabandhu, said the Father of the Nation had a life-time struggle to for establish democracy and make people owners of the country.
"If anyone thinks the country's power and ownership belong to an individual and a party it will be tantamount to disrespecting Bangabandhu and defying his instruction. Because, he made people owners of the country through the constitution signed by him," he said.
The Gonoforum chief urged people to get united to realise their rights and materialise Bangabandhu's dreams.
Gonoforum executive president Prof Abu Sayeed, general secretary Reza Kibria, presidium members Mokabbir Khan, MP, Mohsin Rashid and joint general secretaries Ameen Ahmed Afsary and Mostak Ahmed, among others, were present at the function.
