Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud said that BNP held a black flag march yesterday. But long ago people showed black flag to BNP through elections. They gave dharna to foreigners. To no avail. The people showed their black flags and the foreigners showed their red flags.
The foreign minister said these things in the chief guest’s speech at the Prime Minister’s gift blanket distribution ceremony at Nilphamari Central Shaheed Minar premises on Sunday evening. Blankets were distributed among 5000 cold people there under the initiative of District Awami League. District Awami League President Mayor Dewan Kamal Ahmed presided over the event.
Hasan Mahmud said, “Yesterday BNP leaders said that we (Awami League) are the government of India, Russia and China.” We are the government of the people. We are the government of the working people of this country. A government elected by the people of this country. We have good relations with India, Russia, China; We have good relations with the United States, United Kingdom, European Union and other countries. So they are upset. You have seen that all the countries of the world are congratulating Sheikh Hasina’s government and expressing their interest to work together. This has deepened the frustration in BNP.
The minister also said that BNP does not do politics for the people. The government is distributing blankets among the cold people. Distributing winter clothes. Where is BNP? cannot be found. When the BNP was found, when the petrol bombs were fired. And where is the Jatiya Party, they can’t be found either. They are now busy with Roshan Ershad and GM Kader. Only Awami League is with the people. Only Awami League is with the people.
Under the direction of District Awami League General Secretary Mumtazul Haque, Bangladesh Awami League Organizing Secretary (in charge of Rangpur Division) Sujit Roy Nandi, Agriculture and Cooperative Affairs Secretary Faridunnahar Laili, Relief and Social Welfare Affairs Secretary Aminul Islam, Central Executive Member Hosne Ara Lutfa Dalia, Shahabuddin Faraji etc.
