Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Monday said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul’s statement over the recent arrest of some militants in Kulaura upazila of Moulvibazar district proved that he himself and his party leaders are the main patrons of militant outfits.

Condemning Mirza Fakhrul’s remarks that the government staged a drama to divert the people’s attention to other directions, the information minister said this as the chief guest at a discussion at Jatiya Press Club (JPC).

“We strongly condemn this statement of the BNP secretary general. We have suppressed the militancy, we could have eliminated the menace if they had not patronize the militant outfits,” said Hasan.

Muktijuddher Chetonay Sangbadik Forum organized the discussion, marking the 48th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen addressed the discussion as the special guest while Daily Observer Editor Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury was in the chair.
