Awami League presidium member and Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim on Friday said his party doesn't pursue the politics of vengeance and that's why there is no desire from the party to arrest anybody.
"Why should we arrest Begum Khaleda Zia? Had Awami League believe in vengeance then the trial of the Bangabandhu Killing Case would have been held in a tribunal. But, we didn't. We have no desire to arrest anybody," he said pointing at BNP leadership.
Nasim said this while speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural session of the national convention of Bangladesh Homeopathic Council at the auditorium of the Institution of Engineers at Ramna in the city.
Convener of the national convention Dr AKM Shahidullah chaired the inaugural session, also addressed, among others, by acting secretary of the Health and Family Welfare Ministry Biman Kumar Saha and acting president of Bangladesh Homeopathic Council Dr AKM Alauddin. Chairman of Bangladesh Homeopathy Board Dr Dilip Kumar Roy inaugurated the convention.
Nasim said, "The judiciary is independent in Bangladesh and the courts are also. If a court orders arrest of anybody what we can do."
Pointing at BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia, the senior AL leader said, "Stop your politics of torching people, public and private properties. You can't kill people in the name of politics. People of Bangladesh can never pardon you for what you have done."
Calling upon the people to elect the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for consecutive terms for the sake of continuation of development, Nasim said, "The continuation of the government is needed for continuation of the pace of development. Malaysia emerged as a much developed country as Mahathir Mohammad was in power for 22 consecutive years. So, the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina should be voted to power repeatedly for the sake of development of Bangladesh."
"It's not possible for the government to ensure overall development of the country remaining in the helm of state affairs for a single term. So, Sheikh Hasina government should be voted to power repeatedly to run the state affairs for the sake of country's development," the AL leader added.    ?BSS
