Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday described BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s statement in the court on the Awami League and its president as “shameless falsehood”, saying that it will create confusions in the country’s political arena.
“Khaleda Zia is now out to earn sympathy of the people by shedding crocodile tears in the courtroom,” he said.
“The shameless falsehood on Awami League and its president Sheikh Hasina by Khaleda Zia in the court on Thursday was not a political language at all, it was a street language,” Quader said while exchanging views with journalists before joining a women rally at Kabirhat here this morning.
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges minister, said, appearing before the court, Begum Zia talked different issues and her remarks were clearly political statements which would create “confusion” in the political arena.
Khaleda Zia read out part of a long statement in self-defence during the hearing in Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case at a special court in Dhaka on Thursday.
