Nasim said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is the only leader who initiated the anti-graft drives inside her own party

Awami League Presidium Member and 14-party alliance spokesman Mohammed Nasim has criticized BNP for commenting on corruption.

Mohammed Nasim said making comments on corruption does not suit BNP as the country became champion in corruption five times during BNP regime.

“When you [BNP] were in power, the country became champion in corruption five times. Your leader Khaleda Zia has been convicted in graft cases. So, making comments on corruption does not suit you,” he said.

Nasim said this while addressing a preparatory meeting of the reception committee for the Awami League’s 21st National Council at the party’s central office in Bangabandhu Avenue in Dhaka on Saturday, reports BSS.

Nasim and Awami League Joint General Secretary and Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni were earlier made convener and member secretary respectively of the committee.

Nasim said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is the only leader who initiated the anti-graft drives inside her own party, whereas BNP patronized and gave shelter to corrupt people.

Mentioning that trials of all murder cases are being held during the tenure of the Awami League government, he said the trials of murder cases were not held when BNP was in power, rather the party leaders patronized the killers.

BNP is on the verge of ruin because of their negative politics and mistakes, Nasim said.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Dipu Moni highlighted different activities of the reception committee.

Pointing out that more than 50 foreign guests were invited during the 20th National Council of the party, she said no foreign guests will be invited as they will get invitation for to the birth centenary celebration of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman next year.
