Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib was not only the wife of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman but also his co-fighter in his entire life.

“From behind the curtain, Bangamata had always given inspirations, strength and courage to Bangabandhu in struggles as well as every crisis moment,” he said while talking to reporters after paying homage to Bangamata on her grave at Banani graveyard on the occasion of her 91st birth anniversary.

Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said that Bangamata had contributed extensively to the nation’s struggle for freedom from behind the scene in the absence of Bangabandhu.

While addressing another virtual discussion organised by Institute of Diploma Engineers’ Bangladesh (IDEB) at its auditorium, Quader said the plotters, who wanted to erase the name of Bangabandhu from history through assassination, are being erased from history at present.

“History does not care about the bloodshot eyes of any dictator. Plotters, who earlier tried to efface Bangabandhu’s name, are being erased now,” he said.

Quader said the conspirators of the history had to face the ‘bloody farewell tragedy’ as the murder invites murder, it never forgives anyone.

On BNP leader’s remark that the government is taking back the country’s education system through conspiracy, the AL leader said the BNP even smelt a conspiracy with vaccines earlier.

In order to save the lives of the students, the minister said the government has shut down the educational institutions in this crisis.

“If the lives of children are at risk, what will we do with having education? That is why the government has taken such a decision to save lives,” said the senior ruling party politician clarifying the BNP’s allegation.

Bitterly criticising the political activities of BNP, he said the party only took stance against the government and only shedding “Crocodile Tears” and giving “Lip Service”.

Noting that the Prime Minister has been working relentlessly to address many challenges what the country is facing due to the pandemic, Quader said during this crisis, all political parties should do only one politics that is to save people and stand by the endangered ones.

The AL minister called upon the political parties as well as the professional organisations to follow the health rules from their respective positions and help motivate people to get vaccinated providing hands of cooperation to the helpless citizens.
