Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq on Friday said Awami League (AL) established women rights in the country.
“Women had no identity in the society during the tenure of BNP and Ershad’s Jatiya Party. They had no rights. They were regularly became victims of acid attacks. Sheikh Hasina changed the scenario and stopped all kinds of oppression against them,” he said.
The law minister came up with the observations while addressing a rally of Women Awami League on Nasrin Nabi Pilot Girls High School premises at Akhaura, Brahmanbaria this morning.
Presided over by Akhaura Upazila Women Awami League president Monjuara Begum, the rally was also addressed by Akhaura municipality mayor Takjil Khalifa and upazila Awami League general secretary Peara Begum, among others. Huq said BNP-Jamaat alliance doesn’t believe in Bangladesh.
“If they (BNP-Jamaat) come into power, Bangladesh will not have anything good left. To keep the forward march of development going, we need to make Sheikh Hasina prime minister again,” he added.-BSS
