Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday warned Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) that none of the party’s wrongdoings will be left unchallenged. 

“BNP will not get any benefit by making a threat of movement as Awami League has reached today’s position through street movements and struggles and faced repression, harassment and imprisonment,” he said. Quader gave the warning while speaking at a press conference on contemporary issues at his official residence in the capital. 

Quader said defeated leaders of BNP who failed in both elections and movements are now out to create a chaotic situation in the country in the name of political programme.

BNP’s evil attempts will not succeed as the party will not get any support of the people, he said, questioning what will be the benefit of the people to hear the story of failures of defeated candidates. The AL general secretary said BNP leaders do not have their own remarks rather they readout the messages sent from the bank of the River Thames (London) as like as parrots.

Terming BNP’s Nayapaltan office as a factory of creating rumours, Quader said Nayapaltan office’s propaganda and misinformation have created a wall of mistrust among the BNP leaders in reality.

He said though BNP leaders create ‘storm of movement’ in media, they never stay on streets.

Though some BNP leaders stay on streets, they stay for taking photographs to post those on Facebook and later they search the path to flee, he added.

Quader said BNP leaders say that they will lay down their lives for the party chief Begum Khaleda Zia, but the people did not see a single procession of 500 men of BNP on the city streets.

He said BNP leaders are not worried about the release and treatment of Begum Khaleda Zia. Rather they are doing politics over the issue.
