Information and Broadcasting Minister

Dr Hasan Mahmud today said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina took Awami

League to power for four times like fatherless child in the affection

of a mother after returning to the Bangladesh’s soil which is stained

with Bangabandhu’s blood.

“According to the planning ministry, I, on the homecoming day of

Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, would like to

inform you that the per capita income of Bangladesh has been increased

when the income has been declined about all countries during the

COVID-19 situation,” he said.

“The per capita income has increased to USD 2,227 from USD 2,064

which is one of the biggest achievements for us,” the minister said

while exchanging views with journalists marking the Homecoming Day of

Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the meeting

room of his ministry at Secretariat in the capital.

Hasan said Bangladesh’s position is third in producing paddy across

the globe under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

while the position is fourth in producing freshwater fish, seventh in

producing potato and fourth in producing vegetables.

He said justice has been established in the country under the

supervision of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The verdict of

Bangabandhu assassination was implemented and the verdict of war

criminals has also been implemented, said Hasan, also AL joint general

secretary.

The minister said democracy which was detained at cantonment was

freed and the rights of votes and foods have been established by her

(Sheikh Hasina).

Replying to a query over the Israeli attacks on Palestine, Hasan

said, “We have witnessed that the international human rights

organisations are silent while Israeli forces are killing common

people including children and women in Palestine. They could not see

the autocracy when every media are focusing their (Israeli) brutality.

Even, they didn’t give any statement,” he added.

The minister said the Amnesty International gave statements in

favour of the war criminals of Bangladesh. Even, they gave statement

in favour of Shahidul Haque, he added.

But, he said, the organisation didn’t give any statement in the

incident of the crimes against humanity in Palestine. A deputy

director of their Middle-East and North Africa region spoke to a news

agency, but they have no official statement, he added.

Criticising a comment of BNP secretary general, the minister said he

(Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir) is talking these in everyday and raising

allegations against the government. His statement is nothing but

continuity of his daily statement, he added.

Hasan said the law enforcers are working to provide security of the

lives and properties. But, BNP and their friends are creating obstacle

in providing security to the people, he added.
