Information and Broadcasting Minister and Awami League (AL) Joint General Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud today said the sight of the vulture has fallen on Bangladesh when the nation is marching ahead, urging all to protect the country from the vultures and political crows.
"Many leaders from different parties had joined the BNP when its founder Ziaur Rahman formed the party by distributing leftovers of power. They are crows of politics. The crows have become the associates of foreign vultures. They are looking at the foreigners," he said.
The minister said this while addressing a function at Shilpakala Academy here. Bangabandhu Shishu-Kishore Mela, Chattogram North District unit organized the function to distribute prizes among the meritorious students.
Dr Hasan said BNP will start seeing its final destruction after October 28 as the party declared the deadline for the government's resignation. Earlier, the party tried to topple the government on December 10 last, he said.
But, he said, unfortunately their movement died at Golapbagh cattle market. This time also BNP will start seeing its final destruction after October 28 and their movement will die at 'Jamuna River' or 'Buriganga River'. In fact, BNP wants to hold a picnic on October 28 in the name of movement, he added.
The information minister said Awami League is a party of the street and common people and the party was born to fight against misrule. The party was in opposition for 21 years and every AL man knows how to combat the opposition parties, he added.
Hasan Mahmud said BNP leaders remained silent when innocent Palestinians and children are being killed like birds. "It's really regretful," he said, adding "BNP is silent on Palestine issue in fear of annoying their foreign boss."
He said BNP will remain silent even if their foreign boss loots everything. Everyone should remain alert against them, he added.
About the function, the minister said Bangabandhu liked children very much. His youngest son Sheikh Russell was meritorious and humanitarian, he added.
