BNP censures Dipu’s tours

Foreign Minister Dipu Moni Monday came under bitter criticism from the opposition BNP lawmakers for demanding additional Tk96.3m to cover her ministry’s expenses in the current fiscal year.

“If there was a Nobel Prize for tours, she would have won the award,” said Abul Khayer Bhuiyan, BNP lawmaker from a Laxmipur constituency, opposing the additional funds.

“We do not know how many days out of the 365 days in a year does the foreign minister stay in Bangladesh,” he said.

Another BNP lawmaker Rehana Akter Ranu said the foreign minister ate breakfast in Dhaka, lunched in Delhi, took afternoon snacks in Malaysia and dinner in New York.

Speaking in the local dialect of Chandpur, Dr Dipu Moni’s constituency Ranu, who is also from the same district said: “The people in Chandpur say the bird [foreign minister] flies in and flies out.”

In a humorous mood BNP lawmaker Mahbub Uddin Khokon said the minister flies across borders from one country to another while Indian security forces are killing hundreds of people at the Bangladeshi border.
