Prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday came down heavily on Begum Khaleda Zia for her audacious comment in the court and said that she wants to avoid the trial as she has a ‘criminal and escaping mind’.
‘Khaleda Zia didn’t appear before the court for a single time in the last six months, and standing on the court she said she will no more appear before the court,’ she said.
‘What type of comment it is. Any citizen who obeys law and the constitution can utter such an audacious comment?’ she questioned.
Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, was delivering her introductory speech at a meeting of the AL central working committee held at Ganabhaban here in the evening.
The premier said the date for hearing of the Zia Charitable Trust Case was fixed several times in the last six months. ‘But Khaleda Zia didn’t appear before the court for a single time in the last six months,’ she said.
Sheikh Hasina said as the BNP leader has a ‘criminal mind’, she wants to skip trial. ‘She (Khaleda Zia) has an ‘escaping mind’ and she is moving with it … it’s a reality,’ she added.
