Health Minister Mohammad Nasim yesterday said Awami League had not put any pressure on law enforcers to arrest BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia.
The law enforcement agencies will take proper steps to arrest her as a warrant was issued for her arrerst, he said
The ruling party leader said: “The diplomats were informed about BNP-Jamaat’s violence. If she does not tell her terrorists and militants to stop violence BNP will then throw out the baby with the bath water.”
He made the statement while speaking at a joint meeting of pro-AL professionals, freedom fighters, women organisers and alim-ulamas at the party president’s office at Dhanmondi in the capital.
Speaking at another meeting of Swechchhasebak League at Bangabandhu Avenue he said dialogue did not yield any result in 1991 and 1995.
The meeting was held to prepare for the Suhrawardi Udyan rally on March 7.
Meanwhile, speaking at a programme, Awami League Publicity and Publication Affairs Secretary Hasan Mahmud said there is no difference between BNP chief Khaleda Zia and the militant kingpins, reports BSS.
A few political parties after the partition of the sub-continent tried to impose their ideologies upon the people choosing the path of terrorism and anarchy. These parties including that of the Siraj Shikdar’s party could not stay in politics as they had chosen the path of terrorism, he said.
Begum Khaleda Zia would be depicted as a militant kingpin if anybody goes through the book of history two decades ago from now,” he continued.
Hasan Mahmud said this while speaking as the chief guest at a public rally-cum-human-chain programme in the city organised by Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote.
