I have no any foreign passport: Joy

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s son Sajeeb Wazed Joy announced that he does not possess any foreign passport.
Joy, also Prime Minister’s ICT Affairs Adviser, said, “I don’t have any foreign passport. I have permanent residency in the US. I travel proudly on my green Bangladesh passport.”
He remarked this in a Facebook status update on his verified account on Monday after wading into the controversy over BNP Acting Chairman Tarique Rahman’s passport status.
Sharing a news report on State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam’s defence of earlier statements with regard to Tarique Rahman’s citizenship, Joy also denounced the BNP as “thoroughly dishonest”.
“You cannot believe anything coming out of any of their (BNP) mouths,” he added.
The news report Joy shared contained what appear to be scans of one of Tarique Rahman’s passports along with a copy of a letter sent by the British Home Office to the Bangladesh High Commission accompanying the passports of Tarique and his family.
It remains unclear under what circumstances the Home Office came to be in possession of the passports, or indeed why they were forwarded to the High Commission either.
Joy’s clarification regarding his US citizenship status would support the view that there is no relation between one’s passport and residency.
Earlier, Shahriar Alam was challenged by BNP to prove Tarique gave up Bangladeshi citizenship by submitting his passport to the British Home Office.
