People don’t believe BNP: Nasim
30 November 2015, Nirapad News: Awami League Presidium Member and Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim today said the people of the country do not believe BNP and have no trust in “Dhaner Shish”, the election symbol of BNP.
“The existence of Dhaner Shish will cease to exist on the soil of the Bangladesh,” he said this while speaking as the chief guest at a memorial meeting on late Awami League leader Rashed Musharraf at Jatiya Press Club.
Bangladesh Krishak League organised the discussion on the occasion of the 4th death anniversary of its former president Rashed Mosharraf with its president Motahar Hossain Mollah in the chair.
The programme was also addressed, among others, by railways minister M Mazibul Haque, state minister for textile and jute Mirza Azam and Awami League’s agriculture affairs secretary Dr Abdur Razzak.
Nasim said the people know that ‘Dhaner Shish’ means arson attacks, violence and compromise with Jamaat-Shibir, adding, “People will not cast their votes for BNP or Dhaner Shish.”
The senior Awami League leader said the BNP has not yet discarded the path of conspiracy.
He urged the BNP to join the polls and accept the people’s mandate. “The elections will be held in a free and fair manner,” the minister said.
Nasim said Begum Zia has no alternative to elections, adding, “You (Khaleda) have failed to make Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government controversial.”
