Information and Broadcasting Minister and Awami League joint general secretary Hasan Mahmud said those who opposed independence could not do politics anywhere.

Politics in this country should be such that both the ruling party and the opposition party will have the strength to support the liberation war.

He said this while participating in the handing over of a wreath at the portrait of the Father of the Nation at Dhanmondi No.

32 in the capital on the occasion of the historic six-point day on Monday.

Minister Hasan said, “Sad but true is that even after 50 years of independence, the anti-independence forces who did not want the independence of Bangladesh are still doing politics in this country.

And a big party like BNP does politics with those freedom fighters and gives them a place in their party.

Highlighting the context of the six points, the Information Minister said that the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had declared 6 points in 1979.

People have agitated and struggled on the basis of 6 points as a certificate for the liberation of Bengalis, mass uprisings of 1971, and later elections were held.

After that election, when the Pakistani ruling class did not hand over power, then Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman called for a freedom struggle.

Bangladesh gained independence through a long independence struggle and liberation war.

Mentioning that Bangabandhu had planned independence long ago.

Hasan said that immediately after the creation of Pakistan when he felt that the Bengalis would never be liberated from the structure of the state of Pakistan, he planned the independence of Bangladesh.

Looking at the history at that time, Minister Hasan Mahmud said, ‘In his speech on Bangabandhu’s 53rd birthday in 1972, Mani Singh said that Bangabandhu had written a letter to Mani Singh in 1951 that he was planning for the independence of the whole of Bengal.

Will they stay with him or not? The declaration of the Charter of Liberation of Bengalis through 6 points in 1976 is a unique step towards independence.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud also said that the budget response of some individuals and organizations, including the BNP, is like the words taught by the cockatoo.

He said that as can be seen from the newspapers of the last few years, they have been making the same comments every year after the budget.

The information minister was responding to a question while exchanging views with reporters on the proposed budget for the next financial year at his official residence on Mintu Road in the capital on Friday.

At this time, he presented the budget of the country in a comparative figure with the budgets of different countries.

Hasan Mahmud, the joint general secretary of the Awami League, gave the example of other countries in the world in response to the CPD and some others calling the budget deficit weak.

He said last year the budget deficit was 15.2 percent of GDP in the United States, 14.3 percent in the United Kingdom, 12.72 percent in Japan, 9.3 percent in neighboring India, and only 6.2 percent in Bangladesh.

The Minister said that the fact that Bangladesh has moved ahead even in Corona is proof that the per capita income of the people of the country has surpassed that of India and stood at 2,227.

Hasan Mahmud said the budget given by the Awami League government in 2009 was Tk 6,000 crore.

And this year’s proposed budget of Tk 6 lakh 3 thousand 81 crores has increased 6 times more than that, which is an example of the country’s unprecedented progress under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the last 12 and a half years.

There is nothing for the common man in the budget, in response to the BNP secretary general’s remarks, the information minister said that the budget has given utmost

importance to transport, health, education, employment for the common man, 5 percent of the budget has been allocated to the social security sector, which is 3.1 percent in India. The average allocation in South Asian countries is only 3.46 percent.
