BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir says he does not have a Facebook account.
"I am noticing for some days, some people have opened fake Facebook accounts in my name and posting and commenting from those accounts,” he said in a press statement today.
"In reality, I did not open any Facebook account. I have no link with those comments and I will not shoulder any responsibility of the comments," he said in the statement.
Fakhrul also called out to his supporters not to heed the “smear campaign” and requested the Facebook authorities to come up with a necessary step to stop these fake accounts.
