BNP daydreaming about ousting govt thru movement

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday alleged that BNP is daydreaming about toppling the government through movement.

“They [Bangladesh Nationalist Party] are daydreaming about ousting the government through movement. If BNP resorts to arson terrorism again, then it will lag behind,” he said.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said this while addressing a discussion meeting organised by AL agriculture and cooperatives affairs sub-committee at its central office on Bangabandhu Avenue marking the 75th birthday of AL President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The AL spokesperson said BNP will be in a fix after the inauguration of some mega projects in 2022.

“The politics of voting is very complex in Bangladesh. The country’s people want development now,” he said.

Mentioning that people want to see a person with good characteristic in power and she is the Prime Minister and Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina, Quader said there is no alternative to Sheikh Hasina in the country’s politics.

“The countrymen will not accept if BNP selects a convicted fugitive, who is staying on the bank of Thames River in London, as its leader,” he said. Calling upon the AL leaders and workers to take lessons from the life of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the AL general secretary said many AL men alleged that they get nothing from the party.

“Look at the family of Bangabandhu. When Bangabandhu was in jail, how his family was run and how Begum Mujib took care of a family. Read this history. Take lessons from the history. Bangabandhu's family is a unique example of honest politics. We have to take lessons from it,” he said.

“Sheikh Hasina did not build any alternative powerhouse involving her children and that is why all should take lessons from the Bangabandhu’s family,” he added.

Chaired by AL agriculture and cooperatives affairs chairman Dr Mirza Abdul Jalil, the meeting was addressed, among others, by AL presidium member Matia Chowdhury and joint general secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim.

Member secretary of the AL agriculture and cooperatives affairs sub-committee Faridunnahar Laily moderated the function.
