KUSHTIA, Sept 23, 2020 (BSS) – Awami League (AL) Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif today said the BNP-Jamaat alliance had institutionalized corruption, nurturing the menace when they were in the state power.
“BNP-Jamaat had institutionalized the corruption … but the present government is uprooting the menace. So, criticizing the government’s anti-corruption drives refers to supporting the corrupt people,” he said.
The AL leader made the remarks while talking to journalists before joining a function to inaugurate different development works of Kushtia Sadar Upazila Parishad in the morning here.
Hanif said although the wave of development is swiping over the country under the present AL government, the BNP leaders could not see it as they never did development works when they were in the state power.
Noting that the BNP leaders are spreading hatred against the government to hide their failures as they did not do any development work, he said they are trying to attract the attention of the people by spreading falsehood against the government.
Later, the AL joint general secretary inaugurated the new building of Kushtia Masud Rumi College.
Local lawmaker Selim Altaf George and Kushtia district AL General Secretary Asgar Ali were present at the function, among others.
