Leaders are quitting BNP for its negative politics: Hasan

Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today (Friday) said the BNP leaders are leaving their party due to its negative politics.

“The BNP leaders are leaving their party because of its negative politics. They are telling that BNP has now turned into a nationalist Skype party,” he said while addressing a discussion in the capital.

Institution of Diploma Engineers (IDEB), Bangladesh, arranged the discussion at its auditorium marking its 49th founding anniversary.

Speaking as the chief guest, Hasan said BNP leaders M Morshed Khan and Lt.

Gen. (Retd) Mahbubur Rahman have already left the BNP because of its politics of vandalism. As a result, he said, the strength of BNP is diminishing. Welcoming constructive criticism, he said BNP criticises everything done by the government, but it should acknowledge the government’s good works and development activities.

Hasan, also Awami League publicity and publication secretary, said although the whole world lauds the progress made by Bangladesh, BNP remains blind in this regard.

Highlighting the country’s economic growth, he said former US President Barak Obama praised Bangladesh’s mobile banking system at a function in his village home.

Lauding the economic progress of Bangladesh, Indian economist and Nobel laureate Amartya Kumar Sen advised the least development countries to learn lessons from Bangladesh in achieving high GDP growth, the information minister said.

About the country’s education system, he said, it is time to ensure quality of technical education.

Instead of opening new universities, the number of technical educational institutes should be increased, which will help fulfill the dream of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and achieve the goals set by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, he added.

Hasan said for lack of skilled manpower here, foreigners are taking a huge amount of money from Bangladesh to their home countries every year. “That’s why we should develop skilled manpower,” he added.

Deputy Minister for Education and AL organising secretary Barrister Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury Nowfel and IDEB general secretary Md Shamsur Rahman, among others, spoke at the meeting with IDEB president Engr AKMA Hamid in the chair.

Earlier, Dr Hasan and Nowfel jointly inaugurated a rally on the IDEB premises.
