The whole world is praising Bangladesh today. Even Pakistan is appreciating . But a few people of the country are upset about it. The leader of that upset party is BNP leader Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, he added.
Dr. Hasan said former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, has praised Bangladesh many times.
ÒPresent Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif is also praising Bangladesh and its Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina saying that Bangladesh has left us behind. There was a storm of praise for Sheikh Hasina in a discussion on Pakistani television,Ó he added.
Hasan said, Mirza Fakhrul and their party leaders actually hold Pakistan in their hearts as they are the agents of Pakistan in Bangladesh.
ÒThe country must be protected from the agents of Pakistan. If they get another chance, they will try to make the country Pakistan again. So we have to protect our country from them. Pakistani agents have no place in Bangladesh,Ó Hasan said.
The Information and Broadcasting Minister said, farmers are getting their fair price today, the government is subsidizing the agricultural sector.
ÒOur government subsidizes agriculture in thousands of crores taka every fiscal year. However, the World Bank has advised the IMF to withdraw agricultural subsidies. But Janonetri Sheikh Hasina is thinking about farmers and she is giving thousands of crores taka of subsidies to agriculture,Ó the minister added.
He said, that’s why despite being a small country, Bangladesh is sufficient in food crop production today.
