A- A A+

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has no rights to forgive anyone rather she should make an apology to the nation for killing people.

She said: "BNP chief Khaleda Zia should seek formal apology for her all previous misdeeds that she committed by killing innocent people and giving shelters to anti-liberation forces."

She made the remarks while replying to the queries of journalists during today's press meet over her recent Cambodia visit.

Referring to Khaleda's remarks that she will forgive Sheikh Hasina if she comes to the power again, the PM said: "Why should I expect her to forgive me? What is my offence? Rather she should seek apology for her crimes."

"When she was in the power, her government filed dozens of false cases against me. But, our government filed only a few cases against her. And those were filed on an authentic basis," added the PM.

"Don't forget that she killed scores of innocent people by setting fire at vehicles in 2013 and 14," addressing journalists, the PM said. "She and her family members were involved in August 21 grenade attack in which we lost a number of dedicated leaders and activists. We cannot forget this and those who are responsible will be punished."

Regarding the corruption and money laundering allegations against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's family, Hasina said: "We will take actions following a proper investigation. And for the first time in the country's history, we had brought back the laundered money of Arafat Rahman Koko, Khaleda's younger son.”
