Awami League (AL) Joint General Secretary Jahangir Kabir Nanak on Wednesday said that the cadres of BNP-Jamaat alliance tried to drive the Hindus out of this country but could not do so.
Nanak said this while addressing the first session of the triennial (tri-annual) council of Lalmonirhat district AL at Dak Bungalow ground in Lalmonirhat district town as the chief guest.Pointing at BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Nanak said, Mirza Fakhrul had eaten ‘Rosogolla’ with pleasure when the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power in India.
“He (Mirza Fakhrul) then thought that the BJP would put them (BNP) to power. Now, when BJP President Amit Shah said that minority torture increased in Bangladesh during the BNP regime, it wounds the liver of BNP and Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir,” Nanak said.
The BNP-Jamaat said that Bangladesh would become India if AL is voted to power. There will be no mosque. “Therefore, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has planned to build a model mosque in each upazila,” he said.
Raising the statistics of massive development conducted by the AL government before the party leaders and activists, Nanak said that the AL has established the politics of vote and rice.
“No more Basonti can be found in the northern region from where the seasonal curse of ‘monga’ has also been eliminated by the present government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasna,” he said.
However, there are few media that sometimes try to find a Basonti.“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has illuminated dark Bangladesh by giving electricity to every house and also won the sea,” Nanak said.
“AL has been struggling since its inception. It is a disciplined political party of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his able daughter Sheikh Hasina,” he said.
“We have liberated the country through the War of Liberation. We have to expel intruders from the party. We cannot sacrifice the huge achievements of Sheikh Hasina for the conduct of few wrong-doer activists,” Nanak added.
Chaired by Lalmonirhat district AL President Motahar Hossain, MP, Social Welfare Minister Nuruzzaman Ahmed, MP, AL Organizing Secretary BM Mozammel Haque and Naimuzzaman Mukta addressed the first session of the council.
