BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday alleged that though he does not have any Facebook (FB) account, several fake accounts of the popular social networking site in his name are being used to circulate various comments and opinions.
“I’ve been observing that various statements, remarks and opinions are being posted opening some fake Facebook accounts in my name,” he said in a statement.
The BNP secretary general added, “I would like to clearly say I didn’t open any Facebook account. So, I don’t have any link with the opinions of the fake Facebook accounts and I won’t be responsible for those either.”
He urged those running the fake FB accounts in his name to refrain from doing such malpractice.
Fakhrul also called upon the Facebook authorities to take necessary steps in this regard.
Earlier on October 12 last year, BNP alleged that a ‘fake’ Facebook account has been opened against Fakhrul’s name with an evil motive.
The called upon law enforcement agencies to take proper steps in this regard.
