Former prime minister of Bangladesh and leader of Awami League, Sheikh Hasina condemned the detentions of top political aides from the country's two main opposition parties.
Authorities seized the general secretary of Awami League, Abdul Jalil, at his office in Dhaka. They also arrested former BNP State Minister for Home, Lutfuzzaman Babor and ex- BNP lawmaker and Partex Group Chairman Hashem.
Sheikh Hasina said “government’s ongoing drive seems to be against the politicians not against corruption.”
Amir Khasru interviewed Sheikh Hasina. In a two-way report with Roquia Haider in Washington, Amir Khasru spoke about Sheikh Hasina’s reaction.
