Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday said no anti-liberation fundamentalists and communal force would be invited to attend the programmes to celebrate 'Mujib Barsho' (Mujib Year) marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
He came up with the remark while addressing a media briefing after attending a party meeting on the Mujib Year celebration at AL president Sheikh Hasina’s political office in the capital Dhanmondi area this afternoon.Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said, “All the pro-liberation political parties of the country will be invited to join the programmes of Mujib Year, to be held from March 17, 2020 to March 26, 2021.”
The AL leader also informed that their party would invite BNP to attend the yearlong programmes during the Mujib Year.
“Leaders of BNP will be invited to attend the Mujib Year celebrations. But, it is up to them whether they will join or not. They were also invited to join the programme of the countdown to the birth centenary celebration of the Father of the Nation, but they didn’t attend the programme. I don’t know why they didn’t come,” he added.
