Media misrepresented my speech: HT Imam
Prime minister’s political adviser HT Imam on Monday claimed his speech was represented ‘fragmentarily’ by a section of the media spreading a wrong message that he assured Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leaders of jobs in the civil service.

“The main objective of my speech addressing the young students was academic and educational. But the appalling thing is that some newspapers and electronic media represented my remarks in a dissociating way using fragmentary phrases that the gist of my full remark has changed,” he told a press conference at the PM’s Dhanmondi political office.

Earlier, on Wednesday, HT Imam, addressing a programme of BCL at Dhaka University reportedly said, “You just pass the written test, we’ ll see how much we can help you with the viva voce. Our leader (Sheikh Hasina) has told us to arrange jobs for you by any means.”

Speaking at today’s press conference, HT Imam also noted that the BNP-Jamaat clique took full advantage of the ‘fragmentary’ representation of his speech.

“The quarter which wrongly explained my remarks are no one but those who are busy finding faults of others and wrongly criticising the government,” he said.

The quarter is trying to create a smokescreen around to confuse people for their own interest, and for holding back the progress of the nation, he added.
