Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Wednesday said the masterminds of 1/11 changeover and BNP-Jamaat alliance have now become united against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
“One-Eleven took place as part of an attempt to depoliticise the state. Those who were involved with it are still active,” he said while unveiling the cover of a book titled “Amar Dekha One Eleven” at the National Press Club.
The book has been authored by Prof Dr Syed Modasser Ali, former Health and Social Welfare Advisor to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said a PID handout.
“It’s been proven that Sheikh Hasina’s political opponents have been severely defeated by her political strategy, leadership qualities, bravery and far sightedness. BNP and its allies failed to face Sheikh Hasina politically and resorted to paths of conspiracy. They are plotting various conspiracies in collusion with the masterminds of 1/11 having failed politically,” the Information Minister observed.
He said BNP’s corruption, severe mismanagement, creating a shadow government through ‘Hawa Bhavan’ and the rise of militancy were behind the 1/11 changeover.
