Govt treating BNP the way the CG did

Says Moudud

BNP leader Moudud Ahmed yesterday said there is no difference between the present government and the previous caretaker government in terms of attitude towards the BNP.
The present government is showing similar attitude towards the main opposition like the caretaker government did, Moudud said at a discussion organised by Chirontan Bangladesh Foundation, a pro-BNP social organisation, at the National Press Club.
"We [BNP leaders] cannot go abroad due to embargo. We had faced similar situation during the previous caretaker government. But there is no such embargo on Awami League leaders right now," the former law minister said.
"Our bank accounts have been frozen like in the past. But no such action taken against the Awami League leaders," he added.
At the programme, Chirontan Bangladesh Foundation honoured 10 persons, including leaders of the BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami, for their 'courageous role' in the wake of the 1/11 political changeover in 2007.
They are BNP Secretary General Khandaker Delwar Hossain, BNP Standing Committee Members Brig Gen (retd) ASM Hannan Shah, Goyeshwar Chandra Roy, Barrister Rafiqul Islam Mia, Jamaat Secretary General Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid, Jamaat's senior assistant secretary general Muhammad Qamaruzzaman, Acting Editor of daily Amar Desh Mahmudur Rahman, Swadhinata Forum President Abu Naser Mohammad Rahmatullah and Chirontan Bangladesh Foundation Oresident Dr Mostafizur Rahman Iran.
Former Dhaka University vice chancellor Prof Emazuddin Ahmed and BNP leader Moudud Ahmed handed over crests to them.
Moudud said the 1/11 was part of a conspiracy to halt economic progress of the country and make country weak politically.
Former chief election commissioner Justice Abdur Rouf, Wing Commander (retd) Hamidullah Khan and Jatiya Press Club President Shawkat Mahmud also spoke.
