Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir yesterday said the people hindering the development projects, including Padma bridge, are the “enemies of the country.”
“When we are going to implement Padma Bridge and other development projects for the country, they are hindering the implementation process. In the case of temporary interruption [in the process], they become happy,” he said.
“As they become happy with temporary interruption, they are not related to the interests of the country. They are enemies of Bangladesh. They are the all-time Mir Zafars (betrayers) of Bangladesh,” Alamgir told a discussion.
He said these people are also working to hinder the ongoing war crimes trial.
Dhaka city unit of Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote organised the discussion titled “War Criminals and Militancy Free Non-Communal Bangladesh: Pledge of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina” at the capital's Institute of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh, marking its 32nd founding anniversary.
Alamgir, also a presidium member of ruling Awami League, alleged that the last BNP-led government did not work for the country's development but “only inflated their pockets.”
Eminent actor Pijush Bandyopadhyay said he was sensing “conspiracy” in BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's rejection to the Supreme Court's full verdict declaring the caretaker government system illegal.
Shahe Alam Murad, organising secretary of Dhaka city unit Awami League, and Balram Poddar, director of Janata Bank, among others, spoke at the discussion with Fatema Zaman Sathi, joint convener of Dhaka city unit Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote, in the chair.
