Awami League chief Sheikh Hasina Sunday said the role of an intelligence agency was not to break up political parties. She asked the intelligence agency to stop interfering with the political process.
She said that it could not be accepted that intelligence agents in a civilized society would run the show, detain political leaders and make them say what they like to hear. Hasina angrily blamed intelligence agents and, essentially, the government in a briefing to reporters after she had visited music icon Sabina Yasmin in LabAid Hospital.
Hasina categorically blamed the Directorate General of Forces Intelligence(DGFI) for "intimidating political leaders into divulging details".
