Opposition leaders Thursday scoffed at the government for failing to prove the corruption charges against deposed President HM Ershad, because of what they called 'a dirty political game', reports UNB.
Giving his reaction to the agency, Awami League General Secretary Abdul Jalil said, it is part of an ongoing 'political game' of the government.
About the government's commitment to fight against corruption, he said, "When a government itself is mired in corruption, how they would stand the fight against it."
Workers Party President Rashed Khan Menon said, the entire nation today witnessed how "a political unity without morality protects a corrupt".
He observed that the people of this country know Ershad very well, how corrupt the man is. "It does not require any court's judgement", he added.
JSD President Hasanul Huq Inu said, if the government is honest to fight against corruption, it can move to higher court with the case against Ershad. "It is the failure of the administration" to prove the corruption charges against the former President.
Inu termed the government's attitude about the case against Ershad "doubtful and unfortunate".
He, however, observed that Ershad got acquitted as the government could not prove the allegation of corruption against him.
