Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud said BNP and its secretary general couldn’t come out from the politics of hatred even on the Eid day.
“Begum Khaleda Zia celebrated the Eid outside the prison for unprecedented generosity of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. But, BNP couldn’t come out from the politics of hatred even on the Eid day,” he told replying to a query.
Earlier, the minister exchanged views with the journalists on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr at his residence at Mintu Road in the capital on Saturday.
Hasan said, “It is really regrettable that BNP and its secretary general could not stop giving objectionable speech on the day of Eid. They continued their politics of hatred.”
The minister said BNP Chief Begum Zia was supposed to celebrate her Eid at prison as she is a convicted person.
“But, the Prime Minister has shown her unprecedented generosity by extending Begum Khaleda Zia’s release from jail. For this, BNP should give thanks to the premier,” said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.
