Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said there is no doubt that BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia was also involved in the August-15 carnage conspiracy.
“Zia’s wife (Khaleda) brought self-confessed killer of the Father of the Nation (Sheikh Mujibur Rahman) to Parliament by rigging votes. What does it mean? It was not only Zia but also his wife involved in the conspiracy of the August 15 carnage. There is no doubt,” Hasina said.
She was addressing a discussion organised by Awami League at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre marking the National Mourning Day and the 43rd anniversary of martyrdom of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The Prime Minister said Ziaur Rahman had obstructed the investigation to 15th August killing as he was fully engaged in the killing.
AL President Sheikh Hasina presided over the discussion.
AL General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader, Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed, Health Minister Mohammad Nasim and Awami League leader Advocate Sahara Khatun, General Secretary of Samyabadi Dal Dilip Barua and Tajuddin Ahmed’s daughter Simeen Hussain Rimi, MP, among others, spoke on the occasion.
Syed Shamsul Haque’s poem ‘Amar Porichoy’ was recited at the programme.
