BNP senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Friday said creating pressure on Bangladesh from the side of Indian government for inking security or military deal was an ominous sign for the country.
Warning the government he further said that signing any security or military deal with India will be betrayal to Bangladesh and its people.
The BNP leader came up with the statements while speaking at a press briefing held at the party’s Nayapaltan office today.
He said, “There have been newspaper reports that India is luring Bangladesh with words of Teesta deal and instead will try to sign the India-Bangladesh military deal.”
He was referring to the upcoming India tour of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, where, according to reports, the two countries will sign security and military agreements.
“They (government) are sworn in power to serve the state, not to entertain any foreign country’s interest. People will thwart such anti-state deal,” Rizvi said.
