Tofail for building united resistance against BNP
Commerce minister Tofail Ahmed has urged people to build united resistance against BNP as this party was involved in looting and repressive activities when it was in power in 2001.
"People did not forget the torture and repression BNP carried out after coming to power in 2001. It will do so if it gets scope again," said the Awami League (AL) advisory committee member while speaking at a program of party's new membership enrollment in Bhola on Sunday.
Union AL president Salam Master chaired the programme held at district council while chairman Abdul Momin Tulu, upazila parishad chairman Mosharraf Hossain, upazila AL general secretary Nazrul Islam Golder and AL leaders Zahirul Islam and Moinul Hossain, among others, spoke at the programme.
Tofail said Khaleda Zia formed alliance with war criminals and made anti-liberation elements ministers. But now she is in jail in connection with a corruption case as court sentenced her to imprisonment, he added.
Earlier, the commerce minister attended the biennial council of West Elisha and East Elisha union unit of Sramik League here. Speaking on the occasion Tofail Ahmed said Bangladesh is advancing fast under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
