No personal rivalry between Bangladesh political parties: Bangladesh SC lawyer

Dhaka, Oct 28 (ANI): Noted lawyer in Supreme Court of Bangladesh Zahirul Islam Khan dismissed claims of personal rivalry between Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and BNP leader Begum Khaleda Zia, as tensions mounted ahead of the general elections. Bangladesh has been rocked by protests and counter-protests since January, when a tribunal set up by the government to investigate abuses during a 1971 liberation war sentenced to death in absentia a leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami. Khan while talking to the reporter in Dhaka said on Sunday that there is no personal rivalry but political difference between the two leading parties. Oct 28, 2013
