BNP on Monday, gave a new formula on the much talked about political changeover during in 2007 and blamed Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad for the overall political situation.
BNP standing committee member Brig Gen (retd) ASM Hannan Shah said Ershad was responsible for the whole episode while addressing a discussion at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity Auditorium in the capital.
“Several meetings were held at Ershad’s residence before the 1/11. Ershad is responsible for 1/11,” he said in the discussion titled ‘1/11 Conspiracy and Today’s Bangladesh’ organised by Swadhinata Forum, a pro-BNP social organisation.
In his speech, the former army official said BNP and Khaleda Zia were the worst victims of 1/11. He also called upon all so that another 1/11 cannot reoccur in the country.
Earlier, BNP had blamed Awami League and its chief Sheikh Hasina for the emergence of 1/11.
Claiming that the 1/11 conspiracy is still on, Hannan Shah said the masterminds behind the 1/11 blueprint will have to face trial now or tomorrow.
