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
drive against corruption are complementary to each other, Inu observed.
