Awami League publicity and publication secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud on Sunday urged the leaders of Doctors Association of Bangladesh (DAB) to examine the mental fitness of BNP leaders.
“BNP leaders are talking like dementia patients. I would like to tell DAB leaders to examine the mental fitness of BNP leaders,” he said.
Hasan Mahmud, also a former minister, said this while addressing a press conference at party president Sheikh Hasina’s Dhanmondi political office in the city.
The press conference was convened to protest the remarks of BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s ICT adviser Sajeed Wazed Joy.
On Saturday, Fakhrul castigated Joy saying BNP founder Ziaur Rahman was not a freedom fighter and asked Joy to refrain from speaking like an immature boy.
Dr Hasan Mahmud said, “BNP leaders have been hurt because Joy told the harsh truth. In fact, Zia had worked as a Pakistan spy in disguise of a freedom fighter.”
About BNP’s allegation that Joy gets $2 lakh remuneration as the Prime Minister’s ICT adviser, the Awami league leader said he has been serving as PM’s ICT adviser without any honorarium.
Awami League leaders Abdus Sobhan Golap and Sujit Roy Nandi were, among others, present.
