Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday said he smelled a rat as a quarter is taking preparation to create unrest after reopening of universities.
Addressing a discussion meeting of Bangladesh Chhatra League as the chief guest on Friday, he said the conspiracy goes on inside the country following unrest in a South Asian country (Afghanistan).
Dhaka University unit of Chhatra League organised the discussion meeting at Awami League central office in the capital’s Bangabandhu Avenue marking the month of mourning. Quader, also the road transport and bridge minister, said a group may create campus violence after reopening of the universities.
“They are continuing conspiracy against the government. The activists of Chhatra League should remain alert on the evil group. Never engage in internal feud on trivial issue,” he told the members of the ruling party’s student wing.
Expressing disappointment over the silence of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on couple of issues, Quader said the opposition leader has kept mum about the conspiracies after the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
“The party [BNP] feels irritation in August, the month of mourning,” Quader said, raising question about the BNP’s role in barring Scotland Yard and FBI from investigating the August 21 grenade attack.
“August 15 is the fifth number of birthday of Begum Zia. Another birthday was found during the corona vaccination. She has birthdays on six dates in a year,” said the AL general secretary, expressing surprise over the birthday of BNP chairperson.
