Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wonders whether BNP chief Khaleda Zia, having lost her son, is now able to relate to the pain of the people who have lost their loved ones in the blockade violence.
She made the remarks in Parliament responding to a supplementary question from Treasury Bench member Tajul Islam on Wednesday.
"I will say that she is grieving for her late son. I  understand that she had been put to sleep with an injection as she could not bear the pain caused by the death of her ailing son."
"Can't she (Khaleda) now feel the pain a mother suffers when her healthy son is burned to death? Won't she still understand this and refrain from such brutal acts?" Hasina asked.
She at the time also spoke of the violence convulsing Bangladesh since Jan 5 when the BNP chief called the nationwide nonstop transport blockade.        ?
