Criticising the Prime Minister’s son for what he said making indecent remarks about their party chief, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Tuesday said Khaleda Zia talked about Tk 2,500 core involving Sajeeb Wazed Joy based on information, reports UNB.
“Khaleda Zia who was Prime Minister thrice didn’t say anything (about Joy) without any evidence. She has surely got information about it (Tk 25,00 crore) and she’s somehow obtained it,” said Rizvi.
The BNP leader came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Mayor Professor MA Mannan Mukti Parishad at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity (DRU), demanding the detained Gazipur city mayor’s immediate release.
Earlier on Saturday, BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia at a programme of Jagpa alleged that the government arrested journalist Shafik Rehman as he collected some information about Prime Minister’s son Sajeeb Wazed Joy’s involvement in siphoning off Tk 2,500 crore. “What’s the source of the money? The country’s people want to know what amount of money they have in this way,” she questioned.
In response to Khaleda’s comments, Joy, also the Prime Minister’s ICT affairs adviser, through a status on his Facebook page on Sunday asked Khaleda to inform him about the details of the Tk 2,500 crore she claimed to have kept in his account in the USA as per a case document.
He also branded Khaleda as a liar and thief, and asked her not to malign the Bangabandhu’s grandson
Reacting to Joy’s comments, Rizvi said, “I was a student of the college where Joy’s father Dr Wazed Miah had studied. I heard he was a very gentleman and well-behaved one unlike Joy. The way he made indecent remarks on country’s one of the prime leaders and ex-prime minister Khaleda Zia that manifests he has not been like his father.”
Mentioning that Joy had not come to Bangladesh from the USA when his father was very sick before his death, the BNP leader said the son who had little interest to be bedside his ailing father can defame any revered person.
He also said it is the responsibility of the Prime Minister’s son to prove whether allegation of laundering Tk 2,500 crore is wrong or right. “Why the allegation of corruption is raised against him before entering politics.”
