Foreign Minister and Joint General Secretary of Bangladesh Awami League Dr. Hasan Mahmud commented that BNP could not be started even though many domestic and foreign people pushed it like an old car.
The foreign minister said these things in the chief guest's speech at the memorial meeting of late president of Chattogram South District Awami League former Member of Parliament Moslem Uddin Ahmed on Monday (February 12) evening. This memorial meeting was organized on the occasion of the first death anniversary of Boalkhali Upazila Awami League President late Moslem Uddin Ahmed.
He said that BNP was like an old car that was sitting but could not be started even if pushed by many domestic and foreign people. To start this old car of BNP, the battery has to be changed. But they also have a obsolete battery in London. If this battery is not thrown away, the political car of BNP will never start again. Requesting BNP to be active, I will say that without a change in leadership, your party and politics will never survive.
The foreign minister said, so far the heads of state and government of 70 countries have congratulated our Prime Minister. Joe Biden has written a letter to the Prime Minister, saying he wants to work with the Bangladesh government. A few days later Rishi Sunak also sent a letter congratulating her. The Secretary General of the United Nations also wrote a letter to congratulate. Congratulations by all of the European Commission. So many congratulatory messages have never come before. The whole world has congratulated the government led by Sheikh Hasina, and expressed its desire to work with this government. And after seeing these, the BNP was confused for a few days and could not understand what to do.
Dr. Hasan Mahmud said that there were many conspiracies regarding the election. At first the conspiracy was to prevent the election, when it could not be prevented. Then the conspiracy was to disrupt the elections by creating sabotage. When they could not do that, then the plan was to make the election not acceptable at home and abroad. When the whole world is congratulating, then BNP said now we will distribute leaflets. You distribute leaflets; don't go to distribute petrol bombs. If you do that, you will be given lesson. The late Moslem Uddin Ahmed, who became a leader from an activist, was mentioned by the foreign minister. Hasan Mahmud said that he became a leader from the back row workers of the procession. He was an example of how a worker can become a leader.

Chattogram South District Awami League President Bir Muktijodha Motaherul Islam Chowdhury MP, Member of Parliament for Chittagong-8 Constituency Md.
