BNP fills major posts with plunderers, bombers
Awami League General Secretary Syed Ashraful Islam yesterday alleged that BNP through its council has given important party positions to those who were linked to the politics of plundering, corruption and bombings in the past.
“This force has reorganised to activate the politics of corruption and bombings. If Khaleda Zia comes to power again cashing on our mistakes, her Gulshan office will be turned into the second Hawa Bhaban,” he said.
Ashraf, also LGRD and cooperatives minister, was addressing a discussion organised on the occasion of 16th founding anniversary of AL-backed physicians' organisation Swadhinata Chikitshak Parishad (Swachip) at Biam auditorium in the city.
He said Lutfozzaman Babar and Dr AZM Zahid were key players of those who were indulged in the politics of corruption, killings and bombings centring Hawa Bhaban during the previous government rule.
Zahid, who caused damage to the health sector, has appeared again while newspapers reported that Babar retained his party membership.
These all are symptoms of reorganisation of those who were involved in the politics of corruption and bombings, he said, adding that all need to be watchful so that corrupts and war criminals could not come to power.
Steps have been taken to modernise Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University while a medical college and a nursing institute will also be built there, the AL leader observed.
Deputy Leader of the House Sajeda Chowdhury said like vote rigging and capture of polling booths, the physicians' organisation was also captured, prompting to the formation of Swachip.
Swachip President AFM Ruhal Haque, also health minister, said telemedicine project would be launched at eight places in the country soon, adding that river ambulance is being made to reach remote areas.
