Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Friday hinted at resisting BNP’s evil attempts to oust the government with an iron hand.   

“Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s evil attempts to oust the government will be foiled with an iron hand to protect the people’s life and property,” he said.

The minister gave the warning at a virtual briefing from his official residence on parliament premises, marking Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s release day from jail.

The AL spokesperson made the remark as BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir called for waging a war for going to power.

Mentioning that BNP leaders are undemocratic and their activities show fascist mentality of the party, Quader urged that BNP should be democratic and respectful to democracy inside party and in politics.

“Alongside demanding the democracy, it is also a matter to be practiced. The only way to change the government is election,” he said.

It should be thought intensely whether BNP is hinting at carrying out arson terrorism or creating anarchic situation by calling upon the party workers to wage war, he said.

The minister said if it becomes true, the people remain prepared to give a befitting reply to BNP’s arson terrorism and anarchy.

Terming BNP a failed opposition party, he said BNP workers become frustrated due to the party’s failure in taking proper decision in proper time and reckless leadership.

Quader said BNP failed to take the party workers to streets after making all-out efforts in the last one era.

Under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, now Bangladesh is a country of huge potentials coming out of the circle of disrepute, he said.

BNP is becoming frustrated gradually witnessing the government’s huge achievements, he said.

The AL general secretary said making falsehood and negativity all the time doesn’t suit the mouth of the leaders of a political party. Their remarks reveal their deep frustration and failure.

Talking about AL President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s sacrifice and struggle, Quader said Sheikh Hasina’s journey in national politics began with the undisputed mentality of establishing democratic rights of the people of this soil.

She (Sheikh Hasina) had to face imprisonments and oppressions a lot in her movement for people’s emancipation, Quader said

Sheikh Hasina had to face assassination attempts many times but she kept her journey on defying all conspiracies to take ahead the country as a fearless warrior with the love of people, he said. 

The minister said today Bangladesh attained a dignified position in the international arena under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
