Amid BNP’s constant threats of launching a fierce movement, Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu on Wednesday said the people of this country will not accept anarchy in the name of political movement.
“Movement doesn’t mean killing people by setting fire to vehicles, murdering children in sleep, destroying national resources. People didn’t accept it in the past and wouldn’t do in the future either,” he added.
He made the remark while addressing a discussion meeting organized by Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote marking the National Mourning Day at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy Auditorium in the capital.
Amu alleged that BNP committed ‘genocide’ in the past in the name of political movement along with those who had opposed the country’s independence.
Chaired by Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote president Tarana Halim, the discussion was addressed, among others, by its vice-president ATM Shamsuzzaman, Dhaka city Awami League organising secretary Shahe Alam Murad and Awami League leader Balaram Poddar.
