BNP blames govt to hide indiscipline within party: Hasan

Information and Broadcasting Minister and Awami League Joint General Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud on Friday said the BNP leaders are doing the “politics of blame-game” against the government to hide indiscipline within their own party.

He said this while exchanging views with journalists on contemporary issues at his Minto Road residence in the capital, reports BSS.

Asked about the BNP’s allegation that police opened fire at the party’s rally in Habiganj without any instigation, Hasan said wherever BNP holds rallies in the country, they lock into infighting.

He said before their Habiganj rally, BNP workers locked into infighting and threw chairs to one another in a rally in Sylhet on the occasion of the Victory Day.

Witnessing their infighting, nearby shops and markets were shutdown in fear and the people also became frightened, he said adding that same incident also took place in Habiganj.

To stop their internal strife and indiscipline, police had to take measures to bring the situation under control, he said. In this way, rowdy activities occur in front of the secretary general of a large political party, she said and adding that this is matter of shame for them.

He urged BNP secretary general to stop doing politics of blaming the government to hide their own chaos.

Hasan expressed deep shock and sorrow over the casualties in a fire that broke out in Barguna-bound passenger launch MV Obhijan-10 from Dhaka in the early hours of today.

Motioning that the government would investigate the incident, the minister said if anyone is found guilty in the incident, he or she will be brought to justice.
