BNP’s misrule paved way for 1/11 changeover: Quader

Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said the 1/11 situation was created in the country due to BNP’s corruption and greed for power.

“The ghost of creating the 1/11 situation still remains in the head of BNP,” he said in a statement issued protesting a remark of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

Noting that the BNP leaders are telling imaginary tales, Quader said they are claiming that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government is the continuation of the 1/11 government but the country’s people know better why the 1/11 situation was created.

“It is not unknown to the people of the country - who had increased the (retirement) age of judges to make Justice Hasan the head of the then caretaker government and who made President Iajuddin Ahmed the head of the caretaker government to hold an election of farce.” he said.

The AL general secretary said the BNP government created 1.23 crore fake voters and in fact, the BNP’s effort to sustain its blind greed for power and reign of corruption paved the way for the 1/11 situation.
