(BNP Communication) —  Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday claimed that the allegations that their party chief Begum Khaleda Zia and her family members had illegal assets abroad was baseless, reports the New Age.

‘We’ve received information from across the world and found these allegations baseless. Even the property it (government) is talking about has no existence,’ he said.

Fakhrul came up with the comments while distributing blankets among the poor and destitute on the High Court Mazar premises in Dhaka. Dhaka south city unit BNP arranged the warm clothes distribution program on marking party senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman’s 53rd birthday.

He alleged that the ruling party was spreading falsehood and propaganda involving Khaleda and her family members only to confuse people.

About Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader’s comment that prime minister Sheikh Hasina did not make a shot in the dark without knowing the information about Khaleda’s assets abroad, Fakhrul said the government should prove the allegation if it can.

On Thursday, Sheikh Hasina voiced discontent as the mainstream media did not run any report on Khaleda Zia’s ‘assets in Saudi Arabia’.
