Zia had betrayed freedom fighter-soldiers: Inu

DHAKA Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (Jasod) President and

Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Hasanul Haq

Inu, MP, today said BNP founder General Ziaur Rahman had betrayed freedom

fighters and soldiers.

Zia had betrayed freedom fighters and patriotic soldiers to grab state-

power by killing them, Inu, former information minister of the incumbent

government said, while speaking at a meeting marking the Soldier-People's

Revolution (Sipahi-Janata Biplob) Day at Shaheed Colonel Taher Auditorium at

Bangabandhu Avenue here.

Inu, former information minister of the Awami League-led Grand Alliance

government said the quarter which is observing November 7 as the Revolution

and Solidarity Day is trying to hide the real history and the ugly betrayal

and incident of General Ziaur Rahman.

He said Colonel Taher was sentenced to death on charge of a false and

fabricated case. Since then the BNP is observing the day as National

Revolution and Solidarity Day as this paved way the way for Ziaur Rahman to

grab state-power while pro-Liberation forces marked the freedom fighters and

soldiers' killing day.

Referring to countrywide ongoing anti-corruption drive, the Jasod

president highly appreciated it in the greater interest of the country and


Jasod's struggle for establishing good governance and prime minister's
