Awami League joint general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif MP has asked Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir not to do dirty politics after the release of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia, who was convicted in a corruption case.
He said this while addressing a program organized by the Dhaka University Student Association of Chuadanga (Dusak) scholarship on Saturday (February 15th) at the Dhaka University Business Faculty Conference.
Mahbubul Alam Hanif said that Mirza Fakhrul has urged the government to release Khaleda Zia for humanitarian reasons rather than politics. I wonder who is doing politics with Khaleda Zia’s illness.
Awami League joint general secretary said, “We have repeatedly said that the Awami League government did not make the case of Khaleda Zia’s orphanage.” This was done in 2007 during the caretaker government. Which is now imprisoned after being convicted on the basis of facts and evidence in court.
He also said, “Khaleda Zia is ill. We think that as a top leader of a party, as a common man, there is an opportunity to get medical treatment under the constitution. He is being treated accordingly.
Hanif said there were two avenues for the release of Khaleda Zia. He said that one is to fight the legal process and take bail. The other is to appeal to the government for parole release. They didn’t do that.

He urged the BNP to stop the dirty politics over Khaleda Zia’s health and said that you were doing politics to embarrass the government. If you think you need to apply to the government, if it is legal then the government will consider it. But the country does not want to see dirty politics doing the talk on television.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was saddened by the memory of Sheikh Rasel, the youngest son of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the nation's father.
