Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said on Wednesday BNP under the leadership of Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has become an ineffective party, reports BSS.

"From a least developed country, Bangladesh has now become a middle-income country. From a country of food shortage, Bangladesh now became a food- surplus country. Bangladesh is moving forward in every sector. Rather, it is BNP, which has become an ineffective party," Dr Hasan Mahmud said.

The minister came up with the observations while talking to journalists after the meeting with Indian High Commissioner Riva Ganguly Das at his office at the Secretariat.

Dr Hasan Mahmud said they discussed different aspects of bilateral relations between the two countries.

He especially discussed the biopic of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at the meeting.

"The scriptwriter of the biopic will come to Bangladesh next week and will be here for two weeks.

The Bangladesh-India joint venture film will be made by eminent director Shyam Benegal, where Bangladesh will have 60 per cent ownership and India will have 40 per cent," said Dr Hasan Mahmud, who is also the Publicity and Publication Secretary of Bangladesh Awami League.

The information minister said BNP was supposed to be happy as they were complaining until now that their leader is being kept at a deserted age-old prison, now she is being taken to a newly-made modern jail.
