Total 88 retired senior police officials extend support to AL

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said BNP and Jamaat have worked out two plans ahead of the election -- killing police officers and wooing them with bribes.

"They have chalked out these two plans. There is a criminal in London who sends plans," she said, addressing retired senior police officers at a function at her official Ganabhaban residence in the city.

A total of 88 retired police officers from IGP (Inspector General of Police) rank to ASP (Additional Superintendent of Police) at the function extended their support to Awami League for the 11th national election slated for December 30, reports UNB.

Attending the function were 15 former IGPs, one officer of the former Police Services of Pakistan (PSP), 19 additional IGPs, 24 DIGs, 3 additional DIGs, 11 AIGs and SPs, and 15 additional SPs, all of them retired.

Pointing at BNP and Jamaat, Sheikh Hasina, also the President of Awami League, said now they have a target to kill some senior police officials ahead of the election.

About the violence and arson attacks unleashed by BNP-Jamaat during the last national election, she said the killers and arsonists burnt and beat police members to death mercilessly. "One cannot think of what dangerous deeds they can commit."

Sheikh Hasina hoped that people would cast their votes for her party would win the election again as it is now getting a huge response from voters. "So, we want a peaceful situation to prevail in the country and no chaos." 

Without mentioning the names of Dr Kamal Hossain and other Oikya Front leaders, she criticized them for joining hands with anti-liberation forces.

"It is painful that they have now joined hands with the anti-liberation forces and war criminals. It is very shameful," Hasina said.

Returning to power through an election victory in 2008, her government started developing the socioeconomic status of people, giving it utmost priority. 

Alongside the economic improvement, she said her government put the war criminals on trial and executed their sentences, though many could not imagine that it would be possible. 

At the beginning of the function, on behalf of retired police officers, PSP officer Bir Bikram Mahbub Uddin Ahmed, and four former IGPs, including AKM Shahidul Haque, greeted the Prime Minister with a bouquet.

Former IGP AKM Shahidul Haque conducted the function while several ex-IGPs spoke on the occasion, expressing their solidarity with AL in the election.
