Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder on Friday urged that all should be stay united so no evil force can conspire to tarnish the country’s image.
“Stay awake to the activities of the evil forces. If everyone remains united and aware of the danger, no evil power will dare to tarnish the image of Bangladesh,” he said.
Pointing to the BNP-Jamaat, he said those who do not participate in the elections are the real killers of country’s democracy. “They should be tried in people’s court for such activity,” he added.
BNP is spreading the stink of communalism only to tarnish the reputation of the current government while demeaning the Holy Quran or attack on temples was a part of it, he said. Sadhan Chandra said Bangladesh is now a role model in the world under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
As long as Sheikh Hasina is in power, no one will be able to create obstacles in the development of Bangladesh, he continued.
With acting president of the upazila Awami League Abdul Khaleq in the chair, the programme was attended, among others, by Central Awami League Organising Secretary SM Kamal Hossain, District Awami League President Abdul Malek, Naogaon-2 lawmaker Shahiduzzaman Sarkar and Naogaon-5 lawmaker Barrister Nizam Uddin Jalil.
