Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Tuesday said it provokes laughter when BNP leaders, who destroyed the state and democracy, captured power on gunpoint after killing Bangabandhu and formed the party by distributing leftovers of power, talk about reforming the state, reports BSS.

“I saw their (BNP) proposals of reforming the state and there is a proposal that ‘there will be no compromise with corruption’. People laugh when the party talks about corruption as it made the country champions in corruption for five consecutive times. Even the acting chairman of BNP is a convicted accused for corruption,” he said.

The minister added: “Khandaker Mosharraf did the politics of Chhatra League. Many BNP leaders joined the party to enjoy the leftovers of power. And it is ridiculous when the party leaders talk about reforming the state.”

Hasan said these to reporters after inaugurating inter-university hackathon ‘Code Samurai’ at TSC auditorium of Dhaka University.

He said BNP is staging movement through giving 27 demands where most demands are traditional. There exists no confidence in politics and politicians when anyone talks about the caretaker government in the country, he added.

“We want to establish tolerance and harmony in politics. But they (BNP) don’t want it. For this, they want to bring something which is undemocratic. It is never appropriate,” said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.
