Sheikh Hasina said Dr Kamal earlier made indecent remarks on the attorney general
Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina came down heavily on the Jatiya Oikya Front for walking out of the Election Commission meeting and rebuking the police.
The prime minister made the remarks on Wednesday afternoon while addressing election rallies in Chandpur, Kushtia and Naogaon districts via videoconference from her personal residence Sudha Sadan at Dhanmondi in Dhaka, reports BSS.
“None are being spared from the loathsome behaviour of the Oikya Front leaders. They engaged themselves in a quarrel at the Election Commission and also rebuked the police in unspeakable language,” she said.
Pointing fingers at Dr Kamal Hossain, the Awami League president said people do not expect such indecent behaviour from him, a person known to be an internationally reputed lawyer.
Sheikh Hasina said Dr Kamal earlier made indecent remarks about the attorney general in the court.
“He also threatened reporters by uttering 'khamosh' [shut up]” she said.
The prime minister urged the countrymen to re-elect the Awami League to keep up the country’s development spree and serve the people again.
“We have already executed many projects in the country while many mega schemes are under implementation. So, I call upon the countrymen to continue the pace of development and give us another chance to serve the people again by casting votes for the ‘boat’,” she said.
She also called upon the countrymen to reject the BNP-Jamaat in the December 30 polls so that they do not come to power.
Earlier, the Awami League president joined campaigns in Rajshahi, Joypurhat, Narail, and Gaibandha via videoconference, on December 20 and in Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Brahmanbaria, and Pirojpur on December 19.
Sheikh Hasina—who is contesting the polls for Gopalganj 3—kicked off her election campaign in Gopalganj, on December 12, by paying homage to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in Tungipara.
