Prove yourself innocent, BNP to Joy


Dhaka – BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Saturday urged Prime Minister’s son Sajeeb Wazed Joy toprove that he has no involvement in the allegation of siphoning off Tk 2,500 crore, unb news agency reported.
“Khaleda Zia and BNP have talked about $300 million (Tk 2,500 crore) based on information. It’s the responsibility of Sajeeb Wazed Joy, not Khaleda Zia, to prove whether he has any involvement in it or not,” he said.Rizvi came up with the remarks at a discussion responding to the Prime Minister’s call to BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia to accept Joy’s challenge to divulge elaborate information about $300 million.
Bangladesh Projonmo Academy arranged the discussion at the Jatiya Press Club.
Earlier last week in the city, BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia at a programme of Jagpa alleged that the government arrested journalist Shafik Rehman as he collected some information about Joy’s
involvement in siphoning off Tk 2,500 crore.
In response to Khaleda’s comments, Joy, also the Prime Minister’s ICT affairs adviser, through a status on his Facebook page asked Khaleda to inform him about the details of the Tk 2,500 crore she claimed to have kept in his account in the USA as per a case document.
In her wrap-up speech of the parliament session on Thursday, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also asked Khaleda Zia to accept the challenge thrown at her by Joy. “The BNP chief has tried to mislead people by giving false information about Joy. He challenged her. I hope she’ll accept the challenge by responding to it.”
The Prime Minister also said she provided her son with good education as he on completion of his graduation in computer science from India’ s Bangalore University studied in Harvard University availing himself of a student loan.
Reacting to the Prime Minister’s comment, Rizvi said, “It sounds good that you have provided your son with good education. But, can a well-educated son make indecent remarks about a woman of his mother’s age?”
“I would like to call upon the Prime Minister to get your son admitted to any educational institution in Bangladesh so that he can learn our values that no one should disrespect their seniors,” he added.
Rizvi also alleged that the country’s share market and banks have massively been plundered after Joy was made the Prime Minister’s ICT affairs adviser.
