UNB, Dhaka : Senior Awami League leader Suranjit Sengupta on Monday said BNP is going to organise a long-march programme towards the Teesta Barrage amid the sultry weather of Baishakh only to sow its anti-Indian stance. “It’s not their movement…it’s a bad politics. It (BNP) needs to cooperate with the government over the Teesta issue. BNP should assist the government to resolve the crisis by mounting diplomatic pressure (on India),” he said. Suranit, also the advisory council member of the ruling Awami League, said this while addressing a discussion organised by Bangabandhu Academy at Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) in the city. BNP will stage a long march towards the Teesta Barrage in Nilphamari on April 22-23 demanding the due share of the river water. Mentioning that people have understood the evil politics of Khaleda Zia, the Awami League leader said she wants to instigate India. “This is not a good politics over Teesta. A diplomatic consensus is needed in this regard. This problem will be resolved with the new government of India which will assume power after its ongoing elections. Then tactics of BNP will be vanished on the streets,” said Suranjit. “If anyone unleashes violence in the name of a long march, action has to be taken by the government. If anyone creates anarchy the government has to face it harshly,” the ruling party leader added. On the abduction of Abu Bakar Siddique, husband of Bela chief executive Syeda Rizwana Hasan, Suranjit said “His recovery after 35 hours was a relief for the nation. But questions have arisen over the abduction. We want an appropriate solution through the investigation.” Bangabandhu Academy general secretary Humayun Kanbir, among others, spoke at the programme held with its adviser Haji Mohommad Selim in the chair.
