DHAKA – Social Welfare Minister Rashed Khan Menon today said BNP-Jamaat are spreading rumors of killing and rape on Awami League president’s political office to take advantage capitalising on students’ movement demanding safe roads.

“It is pre-planned…BNP-Jamaat men are hatching conspiracy to mislead the students who are waging movement for safe roads,” he said in a statement issued today.

Menon, also Workers Party President, said BNP-Jamaat intended to use the students’ movement as a political weapon to make political benefits.

Menon hoped that students would understand the ill motive of BNP-Jamaat and return to their classrooms as the government had already accepted their demands.
