Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said it seems from the statement of BNP leaders that they have already chosen the path of conspiracies after being isolated from the mass people of the country.
“The enemies (BNP) chose the path of conspiracy against Bangabandhu after they had failed to face him politically. In that way, BNP is now out to hatch conspiracies after becoming unsuccessful in facing Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina politically,” he said.
The minister made the comments while addressing a protest rally at Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital on Monday. Dhaka South City Unit of Awami League arranged the rally protesting election held on February 15, 1996.
Criticising a comment of BNP leaders over toppling the ruling government, Hasan said there might be two reasons behind their remarks. One is that they have been involved in conspiracies against the government for the last 12 consecutive years like they hatched conspiracy against Father of the Nation.
“Another is that they are now dependent on destiny after becoming isolated from the people of the country,” the minister said.
Terming the recent report of Al-Jazeera as a part of conspiracy, he said Al-Jazeera is losing its credibility as the people of the country and the world didn’t accept the untrue and fabricated reports.
About the rally of BNP, the minister said if the gathering of hundreds of people in Dhaka city out of about two crore people is a huge gathering, then the world is getting smaller for BNP. And it is necessary to understand how isolated they are from the people, said Hasan, also Awami League jointgeneral secretary.
Congratulating BNP leaders for taking COVID 19 vaccine despite spreading propaganda against the vaccine from the very beginning, the minister said BNP leaders should take the vaccine as the government needs strong opposition.
