Themorningbellbd.com desk, February 11: Sajeeb Wazed Joy, Information and Communication Technology Adviser to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said that those who raised the corruption allegation denting reputation of revered people should now apologize to the Prime Minister and her government.
Information and Communication Technology Adviser to the Prime Minister came up with the reaction in a post on his verified Facebook page after a Canadian court dismissed an international bribery case linked to the project yesterday at the prosecution’s request.
In the post, he said, “The World Bank came up with this plot against my mother, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government in an attempt to discredit her.”
Joy also alleged: “The then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had instructed the World Bank to cancel the funding of the Padma Bridge in order to punish our government. She did so because Mohammed Yunus was repeatedly asking her to take action against my mother.”
“I myself was contacted several times during that episode by US State Department officials conveying threats from Hillary Clinton against our Government if we did not back off Yunus,” he added.
He alleged that Hillary Clinton had instructed The World Bank to pull out the funding from the project due to persistent requests of Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, thereby hindering the largest infrastructure project in Bangladesh.
“Yunus deliberately tried to hurt Bangladesh using a foreign power,” he stated.
His outrage extended beyond the parties he holds guilty, and he spoke out against those who stood against the prime minister and the government, saying: “Those people who took sides against Bangladesh are unpatriotic. Indeed they owe Bangladesh an apology.”
“It is also shameful that a section of our so called civil society immediately took sides against our country in favor of the World Bank,” he wrote.
