Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu on Thursday advised BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia to appoint lawyers having Bar-at-Law degrees to save herself and her son from the corruption and murder chares instead of planning to wage a movement.
“Engage your efforts to save yourself. Look for barristers to save yourself and your son from the graft and murder cases shelving the movement plan,” he said while talking to reporters at Kushtia General Hospital.
The minister had been at the hospital to inquire about the diarrhoea patients.
Ziaur Rahman and Khandaker Mushtaque Ahmed had been involved in the killing of Bangabandhu and most of his family members in 1975, Inu alleged adding that Khaleda is now making an evil attempt to reverse the history through resorting to falsehood as she has no other option. “Stop spreading falsehoods… you know who the killers of August 15 are.”
He also claimed that Awami League and Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal had no relation with the killing.
The minister observed that it is the people will decide whether the present government will remain in power or not. “It doesn’t depend on Khaleda’s will as we serve people.”
Urging the BNP chief to take the path of democracy discarding that of killing, conspiracy and falsehood, he said, “Or else, you’ll be thrown into the dustbin of history.”
Assistant director of the Kushtia General Hospital Dr Azizun Nahar, additional district magistrate Anarkali Mahbub and additional police super Abu Bakar Siddique accompanied the minister.
