Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Wednesday urged the BNP leaders to go to the country’s people instead of turning to foreigners, reports BSS.

“We see that BNP always visits foreigners including foreign ambassadors and different foreign organizations. But the countrymen are the owner of the state and they are the owners of power. They will elect the public representatives. Ambassadors or representatives of foreign organisations have no rights to vote for anyone in this country,” he said.

The minister stated these while replying to a query of reporters at the meeting room of his ministry at Secretariat in the capital.

Hasan said it is also not appropriate to interfere in the internal issues of the country by the foreigners. But BNP has always tried that the foreigners could interfere in the country’s internal matter, which is similar to undermining the image of the state, he added.

“I would like to urge the BNP to go to the countrymen instead of visiting the foreigners. And that will be better for the BNP,” said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.

The minister greeted the reporters on the holy Eid-ul-Azha, saying about eight lakh more animals were sacrificed this year than previous years and it proves that the economical capacity of the people has increased.

Earlier, the minister unwrapped the cover of the book ‘Bangladesh Bodiwp Parikalpana 2100’ published by the Department of Films and Publications (DFP).

Information and Broadcasting Secretary Md Mokbul Hossain addressed the function as special guest while DFP director general SM Golam Kibria, Film Censor Board vice chairman Md Saifullah and DFP director Mohammad Ali, among others, were present.
