Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said BNP leaders have become crazy as the whole world is praising Bangladesh and they are talking nonsense.

“The scenario of Bangladesh has been changed due to the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. For this, the world community is praising Jananethri Sheikh Hasina and Bangladesh. But only BNP could not praise and they have gone crazy hearing the global praise,” he said.

The minister said this while inaugurating about hundred projects worth about Taka 250 crore for four unions financed by different departments near Telipara Bridge in Shilak union of Ranguniya upazila of Chattogram.

Hasan said BNP leaders need mental treatment. They might become mad due to hot weather, he added.

He said BNP leaders Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Gayeshwar Chadra, Khandaker Mosharraf, Rizvi Ahmed and Amir Khasru are criticising the government continuously. But, the reality is that the scenario of Bangladesh has changed under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.

He said, “We have made the shiny roads. But some become vocal only when the votes come. We do work. But they just find faults. In fact, the BNP is a party of finding faults.”

Warning the party leaders and activists, the minister said there is no room for those culprits who would be involved in crimes in the name of the party. Tough decisions would be taken against them, said Hasan.

He said some terrorists are staying in hilly areas of Safarbhata union and carrying out criminal activities. A police beat has been set up there and terrorism activities will be surpassed completely, he added.

The minister joined three public meetings in Sarafbhata, Shilak and Padua unions of the upazila.

Later, Hasan inaugurated the academic building of Sukhbilash High School.

Upazila Parishad chairman Swajan Kumar Talukder, Upazila Nirbahi Officer Ataul Gani Osman and AL upazila unit member Ershad Mahmud, among others, were present with school managing committee president Khaled Mahmud in the chair.
