Sherpur: Agriculture Minister Matia Chowdhury on Tuesday said the government will do whatever is needed to stop the BNP-Jamaat-led alliance from unleashing atrocities in the name of movement after Eid.
“You have been clamouring you’ll wage a movement after Eid. We haven’ t created any obstacle to anyone’s democratic movement, and won’t do so in the future,” she said adding, “But it won’t be tolerated if you burn people and children to death and carry out sabotages.”
The minister said this at a VGF (Village Governance Fund) distribution programme at Kspasia Shahid Smriti Junior Secondary School in Nalitabari upazila in the district.
She also criticised US Ambassador-designate to Bangladesh Marcia Stephens Bloom Bernicat for her recent remarks that the parliamentary elections of January 5 was ‘undeniably flawed’.
Matia added that the donor countries should mind their words as Bangladesh does not beg money from them, but takes loan assistances and repays all the money.
She also cricisided Barnicat for expressing concern over the trial of crimes against humanity conducted during the Liberation War of 1971, saying that “Your conscience doesn’t arise when we see the body of dead child in its father’s lap in the Gaza valley today, buy you cry out for human rights when we arrange trials to punish war criminals.”
No atrocity to be allowed: Matia
