Moeen U Ahmed wanted to be president: Moudud
BNP leader Moudud Ahmed yesterday said former army chief Moeen U Ahmed wanted to become president of the country.
“When I was taken to remand under army custody with my eyes blindfolded, I asked two young army officers what they wanted. They replied, they were working so that the army chief [Moeen U Ahmed] could be the country's president,” Moudud said recalling his remand days during the past military backed caretaker government.
He was addressing a book launching ceremony in the Supreme Court Bar Auditorium in the capital.
The University Press Limited has published the book titled “Amar Karagarer Dinguli: 2007-08” [my days in jail] by Moudud.
In the book, he has also expressed his views about Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Opposition Leader Khaleda Zia who were also in sub-jails during the caretaker government.
With former Dhaka University vice-chancellor Prof Emajuddin Ahmed in the chair, Prof Mahbubullah, and Prof Talukder Moniruzzaman also spoke.
