Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today (Sep 26) said Awami League is a party of staging movements on the streets and no one will be found if its leaders and activists take to the streets countrywide.
He said: “We don’t want street fights and the activists of our party have been given directives to show restraint. Besides, BNP is on the streets and even they had uprooted the trees of the streets and vandalised the police boxes in 2013, 2014 and 2015. We want the party (BNP) will carry out their movement systematically. And all including the police administration will cooperate with them.”
The minister was exchanging views with reporters at the meeting room of his ministry at Secretariat in the capital.
BNP in fact wants the politics of violence and their aim is to clash with police and people, he said, adding they want more dead bodies.
Many people are telling that the youth, who was killed in Munshiganj, was hit by a brick thrown by them (BNP) though it was not possible to come to a conclusion in this regard till now, he said.
The minister said BNP fought each other in the name of movement. Even, they carried out attacks on police and innocent people and vandalised the public properties, he added.
The countrymen would resist them like the past, said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.
He said, “We have no objection if anyone carries out movement, criticising the government by maintaining the rules of democracy. There is a problem if they do politics of violence.”
