Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Monday said the word ‘decency’ doesn’t go with BNP as the people still remember the “indecent language” BNP chairperson had used about the prime minister over phone before 2014 national election.
“Our prime minister had made a phone call to Khaleda Zia before the 2014 election but what indecent language she used! People of the country have seen it. Besides, after Koko’s death, the prime minister went to Khaleda’s house to express condolence but she did not open the door even though the prime minister waited outside for 20 minutes,” he said.
Hasan was talking to the newly elected Bangladesh Secretariat Reporters Forum (BSRF) at his office.
He referred to BNP leaders’ statements alleging that the government is not allowing Khaleda to go abroad for treatment.
