PM calls BNP killers, denounces Dr Kamal
Calling the BNP ‘killers’, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has denounced Dr Kamal Hossain for joining hands with them.
The Premier made the statement while speaking at a big public meeting organised by Shibchar Upazila unit of Awami League in Kathalbari Ferryghat area in Madaripur Sunday afternoon.
“Dr Kamal claims to be an advocate of truthfulness, but has joined hands with Tareq Zia, who has no acceptability to the people of Bangladesh,” said Sheikh Hasina.
Coming down heavily on Dr Kamal for forging an alliance with BNP calling the combine a platform of killers and opportunists, she said, “Kamal Hossain speaks loud against corruption, terrorism and militancy. But he has formed an alliance with two recognised militant and terror organizations- BNP and Jamaat, accepting Tareq Zia as his leader.”
The prime minister said Dr Kamal Hossain, who claims to be an internationally renowned lawyer, has forged an alliance with those who are responsible for killing people in arson attack, eating up orphans’ money, money laundering and for corruption.
“Was there no leader in BNP who is eligible to be the acting chairman of BNP?” asked Sheikh Hasina, also the president of Awami League, saying Tareq is convicted in a money laundering case, the ten truck arms smuggling case, the grenade attack case of August 2004 and now staying abroad as a fugitive.
The Prime Minister said people of Bangladesh had given a mandate to Awami League to form the government. In 2014, BNP and Jamaat killed hundreds of people in the name of the movement to foil the election and they did the same in 2015 too.
Sheikh Hasina also inaugurated the ‘Padma Bridge Rail Link Construction Project’ and the permanent river bank protection works adjacent to the main river.
She inspected the overall progress work of the longest bridge of the country on Mawa side.
