Minister without portfolio Suranjit Sengupta on Friday said the Foreign Ministry’s failure to bring back the condemned killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and execute them is unforgivable.
“We couldn’t yet execute the condemned killers of Bangabandhu bringing them back from abroad despite efforts by the government and the Foreign Ministry… I think it’s an inexcusable failure of the Foreign Ministry,” he said addressing a discussion in the capital.
Bangabandhu Academy organised the discussion, ‘Jamaat’s illegal hartal and BNP’s anti-state conspiracy: The duties of the government’, at Diploma Engineers Institute. AL Dhaka City unit joint general secretary Hazi Mohammad Selim presided over the programme.
Suranjit, also an AL advisory council member, said the Foreign Ministry is saying diplomatic efforts are on to pull them back. “After a few months, people will form a new government through the national election. The punishment of the killers should be executed taking them back from abroad as soon as possible,” he added.
About the ongoing political crisis over the polls-time government, the senior AL leader said the path of compromise between two major political parties is getting narrower as the election comes closer.
“BNP is threatening to oust the government through a movement to come to power. I want to ask them to come to the way of compromise and the constitution. Otherwise, BNP will be held responsible, if the democratic and constitutional system is interrupted, he added.
Suranjit deplored that the culture of compromise is yet to be developed in the country. “If the compromise can’t be reached due to the stubbornness of the opposition, the government will have no option but to unilaterally make election announcement as per the constitution,” he noted.
