'I just focussed on innocent lives' Said PM
Sunday, 01 March 2009

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina Sunday said in parliament that her 50-day-old government focused more on saving thousands of innocent civilian lives while dealing with the Feb 25-26 mutiny, which she said was "completely pre-planned massacre".

"I decided to talk myself ... I'd talk with anyone, I thought, to save lives, to save the families, to save the soldiers," she said, replying to charges that she made a tactical mistake by not using force.

"You must surrender, release the hostages, release the officers," Hasina said of the negotiations with rebel representatives she had on Wednesday just hours into the crisis.

"That's why these families survived ... these little children survived.

"What else could we have done?"

She said: "This is unprecedented that we have been able to end such a mutiny and the hostage crisis at such a short time."

"This was completely pre-planned murder," she said.

"I won't say anything now, since the investigation is on," the prime minister said as she referred to those "who organised cars, boats to help them flee".

PM is correct in her wisdom because she said I thought to save lives,save families and save soldiers.But its looking ode that she wants help from outside because we have enough way to findout the criminal, who destroy us.

PM Hasina comments surprising us that how she consider that not to go immediate army action because of for the innocent civilian peoples safety. That means she did not consider for the Army and BDR families in Pilkhana and they are not innocent at all???
How she make conclusion that she able to make end of the crisis???
The rebels groups very safely and peacefully get out from the Philkhana after 48 hours where army and RAB sarrounded the philkhana?
Who has shutdown the mobile network?
Who has switch off the power line in side the Philkhana?
To save her skin and government please requesting her to resign from the Parliament with accepting all the failure of his government and also Chief of Army staff General Moin U ahmed who credited General from Dr Iajuddin on gun point.
This faiure is enough to think about Hasina face
