BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia today questioned the capability and competence of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) to keep the country’s border secured.
She blamed the Awami League government for the predicament of the paramilitary force.
Referring to the recent abduction of BGB Nayek Abdur Razzak by the Myanmar border force, the BNP leader said, “Myanmar Border Police (BGP) has humiliated the BGB man and lowered the image of Bangladesh.”
“The government has damaged the strength of the BGB which was an all-rounder force during our tenure. Now they can only kill our own people with arms bought by the taxpayers’ money.”
The former premier was addressing an iftar programme organised by Labour Party, a component of the BNP-led 20-party alliance, at the Dhaka Ladies Club.
