Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said none can break the Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s (BNP) record of vote robbery.

“BNP made history of vote robbery and no one can smash the record of the vote robbery,” he said.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said made the remarks while addressing a discussion meeting virtually from his official residence on parliament premises in the capital. Dhaka North City Awami League organised the discussion at Krishibid Institution, Bangladesh, marking the Victory Day of Democracy.

Mentioning that the government always welcomes any kind of peaceful progarmme of BNP, Quader warned the government would take stern action against so-called movement for the sake of protecting public property.

Replying to an allegation of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that all votes casted through Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) goes to the ballot boxes of Boat symbol, Quader termed the allegation as a nonsense one.

“So did their two mayors win because the votes of boat went to the Sheaf of Paddy?” he posed a question.

AL Presidium Member Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Organising Secretaries Ahmad Hossain and Mirza Azam and Dhaka North City AL General Secretary SM Mannan Kachi also spoke at the discussion with its president Sheikh Bazlur Rahman in the chair.
