Stating that the country's law and order situation cannot be claimed normal when law enforcers are being killed by criminals, BNP on Wednesday voiced concern saying panic has gripped people over non-stop incidents of murder and secrete attack.

"The common people are now in panic following the killing of a cop in Savar after the murders of two foreigners, a publisher and an attack on another publisher and two writers," said BNP spokesman Asaduzzaman Ripon.

Speaking at a press briefing at the party's Nayapaltan central office, he further said, "The situation can't be considered normal when law enforcers are killed and come under attacks by miscreants."

The BNP leader said the country's people will get further frustrated for the culture of impunity if the perpetrators of the incidents are not arrested and given exemplary punishment.

Referring to the gun attack on a police patrol van in Brahmanbaria on Tuesday, he said people are now deeply concerned over the incident.

Ripon renewed his party's call for a national dialogue with all political parties, civil society members and other stakeholders to find out a solution to overcome the current situation and crisis.

"We think the country is now in a deep crisis. To overcome it, the government must come out of its fallacy that it'll be able to perpetuate its power assuming through a voter-less election. They should sit in talks with all political parties, representatives of all professions and noted citizens to find out a way to relieve the nation from anxiety," he observed.

The BNP leader said their party is ready to help the government overcome the current situation. He protested and condemned the sending of BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and standing committee member
Gayeshwar Chandra Roy to jail after their surrender before lower courts.

Ripon said the government is exposing its fascist attitude by squeezing the political space of the opposition.

He demanded the government immediately release their all detained leaders after withdrawing the 'false cases' filed against them.

The BNP leader came down hard on Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu for what he said making low-taste remarks about their party chairperson Khaleda Zia and senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman.

He alleged that Inu is trying to create obstacles to formation a national unity to overcome the crisis as he knows it very well that he will lose his security money if a free and fair election is held.
