The allegation which Priya Saha placed before the US president over the disappearance of 37 millions of minorities, was untrue, said Bangladesh Hindu Buddhist Christian Oikya Parishad on Thursday.
The leaders of Oikya Parishad came up with the remarks at a press conference at Jatiya Press Club (JPC) in the capital.
A three-member delegation of the Hindu Buddhist Christian Oikya Parishad took part in the ‘Second Ministerial to Advanced Religious Freedom’ conference in Washington on July 7-8, said Oikya Parishad General Secretary Rana Dasgupta while reading a written statement at the press conference, BSS reports.
“Priya Saha was not a member of the delegation,” he added.
She is the organising secretary of the organisation, but she did not go to the United States or meet the US President with any organisational decisions or responsibilities.
“Priya did everything by her own responsibility. The organisation has no link to this regard,” he continued.
The leader of the organisation strongly condemned and protested Priya’s remarks saying: “There is no link to the remarks with us. It is her sole responsibility whatever she told to the US present over the migration of the minorities from the country.”
On July 23, Bangladesh Hindu-Buddha-Christian-Oikya Parishad suspended Priya Saha from her post.
Oikya Parishad presidium members Nim Chandra Bhowmik, Basudeb Dhar, Nirmal Rosario, Kajal Debnath and Joint General Secretary Nirmal Chatterjee were present at the press meet.
