He was answering questions from reporters after visiting the Ashrayan project being built in the village of Rajapur under Akhaura upazila of Brahmanbaria, reports our local correspondent.
“BNP leaders and activists have a habit of spreading propaganda and terrorizing people. They don’t want anything beneficial for people to be implemented in Bangladesh,” the justice minister said .
“Their (BNP) hearts are burning as people’s dream has come true under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. For this reason, they are spreading propaganda on the Padma Bridge,” he continued.
He urged people not to pay attention to BNP propaganda.
On the irregularities in the Ashrayan project at Rajapur village, the minister said that “action has already been taken against those who were involved in corruption. No one will be spared if found involved in irregularities.”
