DHAKA, – Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today said Awami League would work as vanguard against all anti-state political conspiracies.

The minister made the comment while addressing a function to distribute Eid gifts, organized by Bangladesh Krishak League (BKL) at Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital as special guest.

Awami League Presidium Member Matia Chowdhury addressed the programme as the chief guest with BKL president Samir Chanda was in the chair.

Matia, in her speech, said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working round the clock for the welfare of the people and the country.

“On the other hand, BNP’s politics is centering on the treatment of Begum Khaleda Zia. From their statements, it seems that there is no need of treatment for the countrymen and no need of food for them too. We couldn’t understand their attitude,” she added.

Hasan said conspiracies against the country are going on even in the prevailing COVID 19 epidemic.

“When we were celebrating the golden jubilee of the independence and the birth centenary of Bangabandhu, then mayhem was carried out across the country from March 26 to 28 under the banner of Hefazat. But, BNP and Jamaat took part in the anarchy” he added.

The minister said the Hefazat leaders met with the home minister some times. But the government is determined in taking tough actions against the all culprits.

“We would not trust anyone. We will have to uproot all conspiracies and obstacles,” said Hasan, also AL joint general secretary.

The minister said, “We did movements and struggles when we were in the opposition. Awami League formed the government in 1996. I would like to urge all leaders and activists to remain alert against all conspiracies and to work as vanguard.”

Referring to Begum Khaleda Zia’s treatment, Hasan prayed for her early recovery. “Our leader Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has shown her unprecedented generosity by extending Begum Khaleda Zia’s release from jail,” he added.

He said the treatment of COVID-19 is same in all countries and, even, the treatment of Bangladesh is better. “So, I don’t understand the idea of going abroad for the treatment of COVID-19,” added Hasan.

AL Organizing secretary Mirza Azam, MP, BKL general secretary Advocate Umme Kulsum Smriti, MP, Hosne Ara, MP, Shamima Shahriar, MP and BKL vice president Sheikh Jahangir Alam, among others, addressed the function while BKL leader Biswanath Sarker Titu conducted it.
