Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan on Sunday said anti-liberation forces are hatching conspiracy in the name of quota reform movement.
He said it was Jamaat’s students’ wing Islami Chatra Shibir that launched so called quota reform movement for the first time in 2004.
“We will make lists of people who are hatching conspiracies against the country in spite of being in government job. The anti-liberation elements never wanted progress of the country. After the murder of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, they put their selected persons in government jobs,” he said.
The minister came up with the observations while addressing a workers’ rally on Sonali Bank premises in capital’s Motijheel. Shramik Karmachari Peshajibi Muktijoddha Samannaya Parishad organised the rally to realize their six-point demand.
Shipping minister further said the quota system should exist for the sake of upholding the spirit of Liberation War.
“The country is marching forward economically under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. We are heading towards the path of development as we are holding trials of war criminals, eliminating militancy and fighting against drugs. All the forces in support of our great War of Liberation will have to get united in our fight against the conspirators,” Shahjahan Khan added.
Later, a procession was brought out from the premises that ended at Jatiya Press Club after parading through different streets.-BSS
