Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday called upon all not to be misled by the BNP’s propaganda about the coronavirus vaccination.

“Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) is playing old records of false allegations of corruption. I would like to say that don’t be misled by the propaganda,” he said.

Quader, also the Awami League general secretary, made the remarks while addressing a programme to distribute warm clothes. Dhaka city AL south unit organised it at the party’s central office on Bangabandhu Avenue.

The AL spokesperson joined the programme virtually from his official residence on parliament premises in the capital.

Quader said that BNP have again started spreading propaganda about coronavirus vaccination.

“It is a part of their (BNP) evil politics to make government laudable initiatives questionable and controversial,” he said.

“BNP is not standing by the people in the tough time but throwing arrows of criticism. On the other hand, the Awami League has stood by the helpless people in any natural calamity, which is the decade old tradition of Awami League,” he added.

Quader also assured that the government would successfully complete the vaccine collection, management and vaccination with transparency.

Mentioning that fanaticism is a part of BNP’s evil politics character, Quader said people can no longer be fooled by spreading the poison of communalism.

“BNP’s politics is reactive not proactive,” he said.

Talking about ongoing municipal polls, Quader said those who will be found involved in rebellion will be deprived of party posts and nomination.

The AL general secretary also directed the Dhaka city chapter to complete holding council in wards and thanas.

“Pocket committee would not be allowed and scope has to be given to trusted and dedicated leaders,” he said.

Dhaka city south unit president Abu Ahmed Mannafi and its general secretary Humayun Kabir, among others, were present on the occasion.
