Speakers at a large public meeting of Awami League in Chittagong city demanding speedy implementation of the maximum punishment in the judgment of the court for the masterminds and accomplices of the most brutal grenade attack in history said that BNP-Jamaat is responsible for spreading poison in the political culture of this country. It is this BNP-Jamaat that gave rise to militancy in this country. They planned to kill all the top leaders of the Awami League including the Awami League President and current Prime Minister Jannetri Sheikh Hasina on August 21 to carry out their political revenge. Their main target that day, the current Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina survived, but the hellish attack claimed 24 fresh lives. Hundreds of activists of Awami League were injured. The leaders demanded the speedy execution of the maximum punishment in the court judgment of the masterminds and accomplices of the grenade attack.
Speakers made this demand at a meeting held yesterday, August 21 Sunday afternoon at the old railway station premises under the chairmanship of Chittagong Metropolitan Awami League President Mahtab Uddin Chowdhury.
Chittagong Metropolitan Awami League general secretary and former city mayor A.J.M. Nashir Uddin said, ‘The conspiracy of BNP-Jamaat is going on – it will continue – we are not upset. We are in a drunken state.’ In Chittagong Awami League, Jubo League, Chhatra League, Volunteer League, Women Awami League, Sramik League – we are all united. If BNP-Jamaat wants to come to the field and do violence, then I will not let them come down on the streets of Chittagong again.
Now when the prices of commodities have increased all over the world – the price of fuel oil has increased, they are using this opportunity to mislead the common people and religious people of this country about the government and enrage them to serve their political vested interests. Right now, we who are workers of Awami League, workers of Sheikh Hasina, we should avoid all kinds of narrowness. Strengthening the hands of Awami League President-Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. I don’t think we have a difference of opinion. Our goal is one and the same. Our strength is organization. The more we can organize the Awami League, gain the trust of the people, unite the people, then we will be stronger and safer.
Azam Nashir Uddin also said that Begum Zia’s son Tarek Zia had a meeting with the participants of the grenade attack in the presence of the then Minister of State for Home Lutfuzzaman Babar and important people of the coalition government, even the original plan of the grenade attack was being directly monitored from that Hawa Bhaban. Later, Judge Mia’s story was concocted to cover up the incident.
In the president’s speech, Chittagong Metropolitan Awami League Acting President Mahtab Uddin Chowdhury said that the grenade attack on August 21, 2004 was to complete the incomplete mission of the tragedy on August 15, 2004. The ulterior motive behind this grenade attack was to wipe out the legacy of Bangabandhu’s blood and make Awami League leaderless. They are unhappy that their evil intentions are not being fulfilled. For this, they openly signaled to repeat the tragedy on August 15.
