Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud has said BNP is not only a hypocrite party but also a fraud political party as it has been proved through faking the signature of the US congressmen, lying over Indian minister Amit Shah's phone call and distorting statements of the German ambassador.
"It never happened to express outrage by the German ambassador in the country over a statement of a political party. Expressing anger by the German ambassador has proved that BNP's most statements were fictitious made quoting foreigners," he told reporters at the meeting room of his ministry at the secretariat on Monday, reports BSS.
The minister said BNP published a statement before the mass media a few years back making the fake signature of six congressmen.
“For this, the then US congress foreign affairs chairman Ed Royce and member Angel gave statements where they claimed that such forgery is not acceptable,” he added.
Hasan said once Begum Khaleda Zia's press secretary Maruf Kamal told the reporters that Amit Shah called the BNP leader (Begum Zia). But later, the office of the Indian minister (Amit Shah) said that he didn't make any call to her, he added.
"All the incidents proved that BNP is a fraud political party," said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.
