The authorities of the private media channel Rtv had to suspend a live programme for a few minutes Monday night due to a nasty argument between Shipping Minister Shahjahan Khan and BNP leader Rafiqul Islam Miah.
The two got locked into a fight in the “Our Democracy” programme where Monday’s topic was “Safe Journey Home for Eid and Puja”.
The programme, which started at 11:15pm, was taken off air, as the two leaders took to personal attacks while talking about the performances of the incumbent government and the BNP-led four-party government, Prothom Alo online reported.
As it resumed after some time, Shajahan and Rafiqul shook hands on the insistence of the others present.
