Urging all to remain alert, Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said petrol bomb terrorists of BNP are back in the field and everyone would have to resist and drive out them (terrorists).
“We have never obstructed BNP’s rally and we won’t it. But they fight themselves. If we see petrol bomb terrorists, then we will not sit idle. We will resist,” he said.
The minister stated these while addressing a discussion and doa mahfil marking the National Mourning Day organised by Awami League Ranguniya upazila unit at Advocate Nurucchafa Talukder Pouro Auditorium, BSS reports.
Hasan said BNP is now making tall talks staging different agitations due to fuel price hike. But the fuel price has increased about two times across the globe after the Russia-Ukraine war, he said, adding the price of fuel is now 170 US dollars which was 60 US dollars.
And now, he said, the price of fuel is 138 to 140 US dollars which is more than two times. But, the price of fuel has increased 38 to 40 percent in the country which is same as in the West Bengal, he added.
He said the prices of fuel will be adjusted if the price will reduce steadily in the global market.
Criticising a comment of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, the minister said, “Few days ago, our leader has told that we will not obstruct any rally of BNP. And we didn’t. But they spoiled their own rally fighting themselves yesterday. There is no need to obstruct. You will see that BNP will spoil their own rally by fighting themselves.”
He said bombs were blasts at 500 places across the country during the BNP’s regime on August 17 in 2005. Protest rallies will be held on August 17 at union levels across the country protesting BNP’s anarchy and anti-state conspiracies and the AL leaders and activists of Ranguniya will also take part in the rally, said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.
In his speech, the minister paid rich tribute to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
He said Ziaur Rahman and his family were the most beneficiaries of Bangabandhu’s assassination. The accused and witnesses of the Bangabandhu killing case have clearly stated that how and when they met with Ziaur Rahman and how he (Zia) was involved in the conspiracy, he added.
Even later, he said, Khandakar Mostaq made Zia as the chief of army.
Upazila chairman Swajan Kumar Talukder, Emrul Karim Rashed and Sheikh Farid Uddin Chowdhury, among others, addressed the meeting with AL Ranguniya upazila unit vice president Abdul Monaf Sikder in the chair.
Its general secretary Engineer Shamsul Alam Takukder and joint secretary Iqhal Hossain conducted it.
