Taking a swipe at the Jatiya Oikya Front led by Dr Kamal Hossain, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Monday said: “people who cannot stay united want to forge a greater national unity against the government!”

The minister, addressing reporters at his Secretariat office, said: “It makes me laugh...I feel pity seeing Oikya Front's condition. They have been repeatedly talking about forging a greater national unity. But there is no unity in the Oikya Front. They are going to hold a meeting today (Monday) to keep their unity intact.”

Dr Hasan said several Oikya Front leaders have already threatened to leave the alliance.

Mahmud said some Oikya Front leaders have already declared they will quit the alliance. "The announcement of forging a greater unity against the government by those who can't remain united themselves is ridiculous."

He also condemned newly-sworn in BNP MP RumeenFarhana's comment about the parliament being illegal.

The minister said BNP first said they would not join the parliament under any circumstances.

"They took the oath, and even a seat reserved for women. There is always contradiction in their words and actions."

He also criticized BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir for suggesting that the Prime Minister's remarks about Tarique lacked political etiquette.

The minister said it is the duty of the state to enforce and execute a court sentence against any person convicted of a crime.
