DHAKA: Awami League general secretary and LGRD Minister Syed Ashraful Islam said that the government is against giving shelter the religious terrorists or rapists in disguise of Rohingyas.
“The situation ensued in Myanmar now over a rape incident would not go so far if the law enforcers of Myanmar took timely steps,” he added.
The minister came up with the observation in an extended meeting of city Awami League held at Mohanagar Natyamoncha in the city Wednesday.
Syed Ashraf said, “Jamaat is patronizing one portion in Myanmar unrest as a part of their conspiracy to save the war criminals.”
Mentioning no involvement of RMG workers in current unrest, he added, “We increased their salary and allowances after talking with owners and workers when we assumed power. But a party is trying to harm country’s economy by creating unrest.”
With acting president of City Awami League MA Aziz in the chair, the meeting was addressed, among others; by AL joint secretary general Mahbub Ul Alam Hanif, organizing secretary Ahmed Hossain and AFM Bahauddin Nasim.
