No dialogue with murderers : Sheikh Hasina
11 February 2015, Nirapad News: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina once again rejected the possibility of holding any dialogue with them, calling the BNP-Jamaat alliance “murderers, terrorists and militants.”
She said: “The BNP-Jamaat people are militants. We cannot sit with them.”
When asked at a briefing at Dhaka Medical College Hospital whether she would sit for a dialogue with the main political opposition, Hasina countered, “Talks? With whom? With killers, with those who are burning people? Question does not arise.”
Sheikh Hasina visited the burn unit of Bangladesh’s premier medical college hospital to see the patients on Wednesday. Many of these patients are victims of petrol bombs.
“I feel extreme pain when I see that the innocent people are burnt to death with petrol bombs. It is very difficult to believe that people can do such inhuman acts,” she said.
The BNP led political alliance has been enforcing a blockade and general strike since Jan 5. So far at least 69 people have died from petrol bombs. Many more have been injured.
The prime minister called upon the countrymen to remain alert and put up resistance against those, who want to push the country towards darkness with subversive activities “in the name of a movement.”
