Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday termed BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia 'godmother of terrorism' as terrorists got state patronage during her regime and protracted nationwide violent street campaigns were spearheaded in 2014 and 2015 under her instruction.
The Awami League President came up with the remark while addressing the meeting of the AL National Committee at her official residence Ganobhaban in the city.
Sheikh Hasina urged the people to remain alert so that bribe takers, interest mongers, orphan's money looters, money launderers, grenade and bomb attackers and arson terrorists cannot return to power as they will destroy the country.
She said Ziaur Rahman, Khaleda Zia and Tarique Rahman all are killers…they're the family of killers. They just know killing, corruption and money embezzlement and nothing else.
The ruling party chief said Awami League does not believe in the politics of vengeance.
She said Khaleda Zia is now in jail, not in any political case, but in a graft case as it was a matter of misappropriation of orphans' money and the caretaker government lodged the case.
"We've provided a maid for her in the jail…this is very much rare in the world," she said.
Talking about the health condition of BNP Chief Khaleda Zia, she said her knee problem is a very old one. "After coming to power in 1991 she underwent knee-cup surgery in the USA and she did the same later in Saudi Arabia."
Hasina mentioned that Khaleda Zia was seen sitting in a wheelchair while doing shopping abroad and performing hajj. "At that time, Falu (Mosaddeq Hossain Falu) was found pushing her wheelchair," she added.
She called Khaleda Zia as the "godmother of terrorism" in the country as terrorists got state patronage during her regime.
"She [Khaleda] pampered Bangla Bhai like terrorist…she was behind killing people through arson attacks and what could be the bigger terrorism than this!" Hasina wondered.
The Prime Minister asked all to see that the government is conducting its drive against terrorism and it will continue for sure.
The Prime Minister thanked the people of the country for not forgetting the miserable misrules of BNP-Jamaat clique during their regimes and did not vote for them in the 2008 election.
"As a result, BNP got only 29 seats in the 2007 election, many people now forgot this matter," Hasina said.
