Join polls, probe guts: Nasim to Khaleda Zia
Comilla : Mentioning that the next general election will be held in 2019 under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Health Minister Mohammad Nasim on Sunday asked BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to join the polls if she has the guts.
“We don’t like plying in an empty field. The Election Commission has already been formed while the referee appointed. Come wearing your jersey, the Sheaf of Paddy,” he said.
The minister was addressing a programme marking the inauguration of a 20-bed hospital at Bagmara of newly formed Lalmai upazila in the district.
Referring to a Canadian court’s observation describing BNP as a terrorist organisation, Nasim said, “We feel ashamed when foreigners call BNP a terrorist outfit.”
Planning Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal and Director General of the Directorate General of Health Services Dr Abul Kalam Azad were also present.
