Hasina sheds crocodile tears: Delwar

BNP Secretary General Khandaker Delwar Hossain has bitingly criticized the Prime Minister for her remarks on Begum Zia’s feelings towards her sons, saying the Prime Minister is shedding ‘crocodile tears’.
On Monday, Hasina at a discussion on August 15, 1975 at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center questioned Khaleda’s fulfillment of her role as a mother, citing the BNP chairperson’s lack of visits to her ailing sons abroad. The PM extended this line of thought to question how Begum Zia could be expected to stand beside the people, if she could not even stand beside her ailing sons.
Responding in kind on Tuesday, Delwar cranked up the personalization of the country’s politics by questioning how many days the Prime Minister used to stay with her husband, and why her son Joy only came to Dhaka well after Dr Wazed Miah’s death.
“Questions remain about these matters. We do not want to talk about these things as we don’t feel it is good to comment on someone’s personal matters,” said the BNP secretary general at a meeting at Mohanagar Natya Mancha marking BNP’s 32nd founding anniversary tomorrow.
BNP Vice Chairman Selima Rahman presided over the meeting, which was addressed by BNP standing committee member Dr Khondkar Mosharaf Hossain, MK Anwar, Nazrul Islam Khan, Vice Chairman Altaf Hossain Chowdhury, chairperson’s adviser Shamsuzzaman Dudu, Prof MA Mannan and joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
Delwar asked the BNP men to stay united considering country’s current situation.
Dr Khondkar Mosharaf Hossain said both local and foreign conspiracies are being hatched in the country, before indicating the foreign powers were holding greater sway over matters.
