Hasina's comments

It was reported in your newspaper that Sheikh Hasina's estimated wealth might be around Tk 2 crore, including Tk1.19 crore interest from savings. If the report is true, I would like to mention here that 3/4 months back when Dr. Yunus wanted to join politics, Sheikh Hasina made a comment that "Shudkhor and ghushkhor are the same" (those who take interest or bribe fall in the same category).

So, taking Tk 1.19 crore interest from different banks will also be treated as the same type of offence as taking bribe. The sympathisers of Sheikh Hasina must remember that the comment made by her is applicable to all.
