Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader has demanded resignation of the BNP leaders from the party for their failure to wage any movement.

“The leaders of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) should resign from the party for their failure to wage any movement. The country has never experienced such failed opposition like BNP,” he said.

Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, was speaking at a press briefing after emerging from a meeting at Awami League president Sheikh Hasina’s political office at Dhanmondi in the capital on Saturday.

The Awami League (AL) general secretary said this in the context of BNP’s announcement of freeing its chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail by waging a movement.

He said BNP could not create pressure on the ruling AL government in last 10 years even after announcement of its chairperson to wage an all-out movement against the government.

“Moreover, BNP has failed to wage any successful movement against the government for a single day in last 10 years,” he said.

“Will the government topple through the declaration of the BNP general secretary? The base of this government is very strong,” he said.

Mentioning that BNP has no confidence in the people of the country, Quader posed three questions to its leaders.

“Firstly, why did BNP pass the Indemnity Bill to stop trial of the killers of Bangabandhu and inducted it in the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution to save the killers?”
