Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today said the popularity of BNP has crashed down to the lowest level for its negative politics and it was proved in the last parliamentary elections.
“I urge the BNP to do positive politics. Now their popularity has gone down to the lowest level for its negative and bad politics,” he told a memorial meeting on the Shaheed Minar premises in the city.
North city unit Awami League organised the programme in memory of its late president Nurul Alam Chowdhury.
Criticizing the BNP’s decision not to join the Prime Minister’s tea party, Hasan said it’s normal that BNP won’t go to the PM’s party as they didn’t open the door of the party office to Sheikh Hasina when she went to express sympathy over the death of BNP chief’s younger son Arafat Rahman Koko. The Prime Minister had waited there for 10 minutes, he added.
Hasan, also the publicity and publication secretary of Awami League, said, “It’s natural that the BNP chief who changed her birth date to make mockery with the August 15 massacre and cut cake on the day, they won’t join the Prime Minister’s tea party.”
He, however, urged the BNP to come forward to take the country forward.
