Part company of war criminals, Inu to BNP
Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu on Saturday urged BNP to end its ‘relationship’ with war criminals (Jamaat-e-Islami) and Hefazat-e-Islam if it wants to sit in talks over election and democracy.
Inu, also the chief of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD), made the remark while talking to reporters at Kushtia Circuit House.
He made the comment referring to BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed’s statement that the government has to sit with them for dialogue.
Inu said the debate over the war criminals and the Hefazat-e-Islam should come to an end just like debate over national election.
“They (BNP) are placing various proposals over the next election, but not talking about leaving the war criminals and the Hefazat,” he said.
“The Awami League-led alliance is not afraid of national polls as it has the history of winning with majority votes. We’ll rule as long as the people of the country desire,” Inu added.
Additional deputy commissioner (ADC) of Kushtia Md Ahsan Habib, JSD central leader Abdul Alim Swapan and Kushtia district JSD president Golam Mohsin, among others, attended the programme.
