Information Minister Hasan Mahmud on Friday dubbed the BNP a ‘party of criminals’ and Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir its leader.
He made the remark while talking to reporters at the Engineers Institution in the evening.
Responding to Fakhrul’s recent remark that Awami League is a “terror-based party”, the minister said: “He (Fakhrul) is surrounded by criminals. He himself is the leader of the petrol bomb attackers.”
“Such statement is a big joke with the nation,” Hasan Mahmud said.
