28 February 2015, Nirapad News: Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu today said killing people by using petrol bombs is not a movement in anyway.

“Movement is involving common people in support of the demand to force the government to accept it. Awami League did many movements in the past but never called hartal or blockade during the examinations,” he said.

“Hartals and blockades are being observed only in name. Because, cocktails and petrol bombs are being hurled every now and then to create panic,” Amu, also the advisory council member of Awami League, added.

He came up with the observations while addressing the inaugural function of annual sports competition of Udbodhon Secondary School in Jhalakathi town.

Presided over by Shamsul Ikram Piru, chairman of the managing committee of the school, the function was addressed by Prof Md Ziaul Haque, deputy commissioner of Jhalakathi Md Shakhawat Hossain, district Awami League secretary Adv Khan Saifullah Ponir, among others.
