Pakistan is using the BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami to destroy Bangladesh, says senior Awami League leader Mahbub-ul-Alam Hanif.
“The BNP-Jamaat alliance is working as an agent of Pakistan,” he told a discussion on Saturday.
“Pakistan is not happy to see the progress we are making. So they are using BNP-Jamaat to destroy us,” said Joint General Secretary Hanif.
Hanif hit back at BNP leader Moudud Ahmed's remark that the ruling part was 'misleading the nation' over the 2014 national elections.
“We have said time and again that the Jan 5 election was held to evade a constitutional vacuum. Did you (Moudud) want that to happen?
“Forty-two percent of the population voted in that election. You (BNP) barred people from voting. Had you contested, 70 percent of the population would have voted,” said Hanif.
