Awami League joint general secretary Mahbub-ul-Alam Hanif said the nation is not frustrated rather BNP leaders are frustrated at Prime Minister’s speech. Hanif said while addressing a press conference at the political office of Awami League president Sheikh Hasina at Dhanmondi in the city
BNP was frustrated witnessing the unprecedented development of the country recorded by the present government, claimed Hanif. “We are saying time and again that there is no political crisis in Bangladesh now but there are crises in Pakistani-minded Khaleda and her party BNP, not among the masses,” he added.
Hanif said, “The whole nation is expecting a ray of hope anew following the speech of the Prime Minister. They are dreaming afresh. At the same time, the defeated forces of 1971, the agent and ghost of Pakistan like BNP is trying to mislead the people resorting to falsehood on Prime Minister's address.”
He said BNP was born illegally. Awami League starts journey on June 23 in 1949 for establishing the right's of the masses. If the BNP leaders are ignorant about the history they may through the history book.
“People are the source of all power. If people want to see an ‘illegal’ party to be announced as an as illegal one (party), then announcement in this regard may be made in accordance with the people's will,” Hanif said.
Hanif said, “Awami League as a people-oriented political party of the country was floated many years before 1971. So, we expect that no BNP leader would show shamelessness in branding Awami League as an illegal party in future. Nothing good can be expected from a party (BNP) which is led by a lady leader who doesn’t believe in Bangladesh till now. Time has come to identify those liars in BNP including its chairperson. There’s no time to be misled by their falsehood.”
