Low income people and middle class are not able to celebrate this day. That is why BNP has been agitating against the rise in commodity prices for the past one year.

He said these things during an exchange of views with reporters at his home in Kalibari, Thakurgaon on Thursday morning, June 29, 2023. BNP Secretary General also said that due to lack of transparency and accountability, the failed government could not control the economy, commodity and inflation.
