BNP’s unabated falsehood reflects its fascist mentality: Quader

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said on Tuesday BNP’s unabated falsehood is part of their fascist mentality.
 
“During BNP’s government tenure, they had practiced fascism,” he told a press briefing at his official residence.
 
Quader called upon BNP to see their own faces in the looking glass before calling the Awami League government a fascist one.
 
“If you see your own face in the mirror, you can find you are inheriting fascism and fascist mentalist lies in you,” he said.
 
About BNP leaders’ comment that the government is lunching repression and torture to hide its failure, the minister said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government doesn’t believe in repression and torture rather it always welcomes constructive criticism.
 
BNP is such a political party which didn’t see a single success or achievement of the government in the last 13 years and saw only so-called failures, he said.
 
The AL general secretary said BNP doesn’t witness different development works across the country including Padma bridge, metro-rail, elevated expressway, Karnaphuli tunnel, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), 22 flyovers and around 20 underpasses.
 
Actually BNP feels increasing jealousy by witnessing these development works, he said.
 
Quader said today the country has been brought under cent percent electricity coverage which is also one of reasons of BNP’s jealousy.
 
He said BNP cannot tolerate the country’s unprecedented progress as Bangladesh’s per capita income now reached $2227.
 
BNP leaders find their mental peace and comfort by spreading hatred against the government, he said, adding that BNP never tries to find out their own failures.
 
BNP wants to conceal their own failures by keeping its workers and supporters in puzzle, he said.
 
The minister said BNP is spreading falsehood constantly but they are saying that their scopes of expressing opinions are lessening.
 
Quader said everyday their comments are being covered by print, electronic and online media while they are getting additional time to speak in Parliament compared to their number of seats but they are saying that time is being shortened for them!
 
The AL general secretary said BNP secretary general could have unchecked scopes for expressing opinions and he has no need to shout outside if he joined parliament after being elected as a member of parliament.
  
Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir could speak in parliament but he showed double standard by not joining parliament even after being elected, he said.
