BNP remains unwell as people remain well: Quader

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said on Friday BNP doesn't remain well as the country's people remain well. 

He was addressing, as the chief guest, the triennial council of Awami League (AL)'s Chapainawabganj municipality unit joining it virtually.

Quader said BNP feels jealousy as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is implementing development projects one after another including Padma bridge, metro-rail, elevated expressway, Karnaphuli tunnel, underpasses, upgrading highways to four or eight lanes and reaching electricity to the doorsteps of people.

BNP leaders are making absurd comments as they cannot tolerate these development works, he said, adding that today wind of peace is blowing through Bangladesh after overcoming the BNP's dark period and that is the reason for BNP's jealousy. Mentioning that the country's democracy is not safe to BNP, the minister said BNP doesn't perform politics for the country's people rather for looters.

Talking of movements doesn't suit the people, who could not bring out a single effective procession on streets for the party's chairperson, he said, adding BNP's series meetings are part of series conspiracy.

As the people boycotted BNP, they fear to join polls and that is why BNP is spreading propaganda centering elections, he said.

Quader said Sheikh Hasina's goal is to develop the fortune of the people while BNP's target is to develop their own fortune earning money.

He also called upon the party leaders to provide scopes to devoted workers of the party who stayed beside the AL during its dire need.

The AL general secretary said public representatives who will be found involved in wrongdoings, drug trading, and terrorist acts will not get party's nomination in any elections in the future.
