Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today (Mar 11) blamed the BNP leaders for spreading falsehood repeatedly to destroy the achievements of the country's independence.
She said: “Telling lies, indulging in corruption and looting are their (BNP) habits.”
The premier was addressing a grand public rally at the Circuit House ground here in the afternoon.
The Prime Minister questioned the inhabitants of Mymensingh, “Whether opening 103 development projects in Mymensingh is the sample of destroying Bangladesh?”
She, at the outset of the rally, formally inaugurated 73 development projects involving Taka Taka 570.07 crore and laid foundation stones of 30 other schemes worth Tk 2,762.27 crore in Mymensingh Division by unveiling the plaque.
Mentioning that the BNP leaders have said that the Awami League did nothing for the country’s development, she questioned whether they could spread such falsehoods if her government did not make Bangladesh into a digital country or give electricity to every doorstep.
“We have done nothing. But they are spreading propaganda against us using the things that we have given,” she said.
Pointing at fugitive BNP leader Tarique Rahman, who went hiding after being accused in a number of criminal cases that include August 21,2004 grenade attack cases, 10-truck arms haul case and corruption cases, the premier said he (Tarique) is now doing politics staying abroad using the advantage of digital Bangladesh.
