BNP’s politics is on life support, says Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday claimed that BNP’s politics is on life support.

“Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) is facing wrath of common people for not standing by the people amid the coronavirus crisis and the party has also lost confidence of its activists and supporters due to the party’s whimsical politics,” he said.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said this while addressing a virtual press briefing at his official residence on parliament premises in the capital.

The minister came up with the remark as the BNP recently claimed that the government is in ventilation during coronavirus pandemic.

Quader urged the BNP to look at themselves as it does not have soil on their feet and it is still alive due to the media.

Mentioning that BNP considered common people as their opponent as they never carried out politics for countrymen, Quader said the government does not listen to the BNP’s purposeful propaganda because the people do not believe in BNP’s cunning words. The AL general secretary said BNP doesn’t have the ability to take decision except carrying out order from abroad.

“BNP’s politics is nothing but patronizing murderers, corrupt and communal evil forces and exploiting the helpless people. Their politics is to distort the history, unleash lies and spread propaganda. The endless lies of the BNP leaders about the vaccine are nothing but meaningless propaganda,” he said.

Mentioning that there is no crisis of vaccine in the country, Quader urged the people not to be distracted by the propaganda of selfish quarters due to listening rumors.

“All has to receive vaccine along with wearing masks by all,” he said.

Extreme ignorance of hygiene can lead to suicidal disasters, Quader said, “Rate of coronavirus infection is still at a high level, so all has to ensure own safety. Otherwise, if the situation deteriorates, the government will be forced to impose strict restrictions again to protect public health and interest,” he said.
