Minister of Information and Broadcasting. Hasan Mahmud said, in view of the recent statement of BNP, it seems that Khaleda Zia has been kept out of jail by showing magnanimity even after she was not granted bail in the court or proved innocent, it seems that we have made a mistake. Now it has to be reconsidered. Whether he will be sent back to jail again according to the law will have to be thought about.
He said these things in a meeting with leaders of the newly elected committee of Bangladesh Secretariat Reporters Forum (BSRF) at the Secretariat on Monday.
Referring to Fakhrul's comment that 'the Prime Minister's speech in the Parliament is devoid of decency', he said that the Prime Minister has told some unpleasant truths in the Parliament.
He said, Ziaur Rahman seized power by force of arms and formed the party by handing over the rest of the power. This political party is born illegal which the High Court also said in the judgment.
BNP actually needs to accept the truth. One cannot survive long on falsehood. He urged Fakhrul to teach their leaders decency.
With the resignation of two leaders from the central committee of the BNP, it seems that the exodus from the BNP has begun. BNP was once like the Bahata River. He said that the river which is now dry, has died.
