BNP out to tarnish country’s image, says Quader

Popular News

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) is involved in hatching conspiracy to tarnish the image of the country.

“BNP is concerned in hatching plots to tarnish the image of the country abroad alongside creating anarchy at home,” he said.

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

The AL spokesperson came up with the remark as its arch rival BNP activists staged demonstration marking Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit to USA to join 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.

Condemning strongly the BNP’s protest and demonstration in USA, Quader smells a rat over BNP’s conspiratorial mischief.

Mentioning that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina refrained from making visit abroad for 19 months due to Covid-19, Quader said the premier decided to join the UNGA considering the national interest.

“There is an opportunity to discuss issues of mutual interest with the leaders of different countries, that’s why the premier is joining the summit in person instead of virtual participation,” he said.

The minister also said that realizing the importance of the UNGA, the Prime Minister does not want to miss the opportunity to speak on behalf of the people of Bangladesh in the major UN forums on various issues including Covid-19, climate change and Rohingya crisis.

“The BNP is starting protests before the arrival of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in New York,” he said.

Mentioning that BNP has lost the confidence of the people due to its evil politics, Quader said BNP is now holding series of indoor meetings aiming to create chaos in the country and fish in troubled water.

BNP has again started hatching conspiracy with new tactics to obstruct the establishment of democracy, Quader said BNP’s efforts to destabilize the country will never succeed.
