Ruling Awami League lawmaker Abdul Mazid yesterday in parliament slammed Bangladesh Hindu-Bouddha-Christian Oikya Parishad leader Rana Dasgupta for his alleged speech on seeking Indian prime minister's intervention regarding security of minority people in Bangladesh.
The AL lawmaker from Habiganj-2 alleged that Rana Dasgupta's comment will hamper Bangladesh's communal harmony.
“Why he [Rana] is speaking the way Pakistan speaks about Bangladesh? His speech is tantamount to create provoke in Bangladesh,” said Mazid mentioning that Bangladesh is a country of communal harmony which is internationally recognised. But Rana Dasgupta has spoken against this communal harmony.
He also said the government has given special allocation of Tk 200 crore in the budget for the welfare of Hindu community.
