BNP suffering from political bankruptcy, says Nasim


Dhaka, October 14: Without mentioning the name of Dr Kamal Hossain, Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim on Sunday said BNP has manifested its political bankruptcy through hiring a ‘thrown-out’ leader though its leader is still alive.“You (BNP leaders) should’ve resigned as you’ve hired a ‘rejected’ leader when your leader is still alive and living in jail. You’re mentally ill and you should receive mental treatment for manifesting your bankruptcy,” he said, UNB reports.

While addressing a seminar organised by Bangladesh Association of Psychiatrists at the National Institute of Mental Health and Hospital in the city’s Sher-e-Bangla Nagar area, Nasim also alleged that the ‘conspirators’ have joined together in the name of ‘Jatiya Oikya Front’.

The ruling party leader asked the BNP leaders to come to power first winning the next general election and then form a caretaker government.

Branding BNP as a ‘master of conspiracy’, Nasim said no plot will work now. “The election is knocking on the door and get ready for the election.”

BNP, Jatiya Oikya Prokriya and a faction of Jukta Front on Saturday launched a new opposition alliance, ‘Jatiya Oikya Front’, ahead of the national election without Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh President AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury.

Dr Kamal Hossain came up with the announcement of the Jatiya Oikya Front at a press conference at the Jatiya Press Club while Nagorik Oikya Convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna read out the demands and goals of the alliance.

The new alliance envisages realising seven demands, including the resignation of the government, dissolution of parliament, formation of an election-time neutral government and the release of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, and meeting 11 goals.
