Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has alleged that the BNP-Jamaat nexus has joined hands with Israel to oust her government, as they are working against the country and Islam.
“The truth can never be suppressed…the BNP-Jamaat clique has joined hands with those who are frequently killing children and women in Palestine,” she told a discussion at St James Court-Taj Hotel here on Tuesday.
Urging people to keep watch on the conspirators, the Prime Minister said, “These plotters and killers are conspiring against the country and Islam…they don’t want Bangladesh and they don’t understand anything other than their personal interests.”
Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League President, said the BNP-Jamaat nexus killed numerous people and committed unbridled corruption and plundering when they were in power. “There has been little change in their character yet.”
Referring to the killings and violence unleashed by the BNP-Jamaat clique to foil the January-5 elections and during the first three months of the last year, she said they had wanted to go to power by keeping their feet on the charred bodies of people.
“The common people, even women, children, college and university students couldn’t escape their (BNP-Jamaat) vengeance…how cruel they were! Khaleda Zia is yet to seek pardon to the country’s people for her crime,” she said.
Hasina said they stopped their crimes when they faced public wraths and the BNP leader had to return home by pulling back her tail after being defeated in the movement.
Pointing to the recent secret killings in the country, Hasina said now the BNP-Jamaat alliance is murdering imams, priests of temples and fathers of churches and university teachers selectively.
“They’ve recently killed USAID staff Xulhaz Mannan who was a cousin of our former foreign minister Dr Dipu Moni and they did it to create panic,” she said.
