He also said all the leaders of BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami, the descendants of who were anti-liberation evil-forces, are engaged in anti-national conspiracy.
“When the country is moving forward, even after five decades of independence, the anti-independence forces are plotting various conspiracies against the country,” Hasan said.
“They (BNP) are giving wrong information about the country to foreigners and are involved in conspiracies at home and abroad.”
Paying respect to the martyrs of the liberation war, Hasan Mahmud said the dreams that Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman that led the struggle for the country’s independence, could not be realized due to his assassination on August 15, 1975.
