Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) will have to face the consequence Muslim League had suffered if the party cannot make internal reforms.

“If BNP fails to change itself, they will meet the fate of the Muslim League,” he said.

Quader, also the general secretary of the Awami Legaue, made the remark while addressing a press conference virtually from his official residence on parliament premises in the capital. 

The AL leader said people want BNP to walk no more through an undemocratic way, but return to a recognised and constitutional way in politics, shunning all the extremism and religious fanatics 

Refuting the BNP leaders statement that suffocating situation prevails everywhere, so people now want change, Quader said BNP now falls in such identical situation due to their negative politics.

“Actually, suffocating situation is prevailing in the politics of BNP as it failed in the election and movement that caused frustration among the leaders and activists,” he said.

“Imprudent politics, fanaticism and power-hungry leadership have led the BNP to such difficult situation,” he said.

Criticizing the BNP, the minister said the country is now moving ahead, positive changes have come in every sector and now the people want to change the evil politics unleashed by the BNP.  

“BNP leaders are always sees anarchy in everywhere as they never could see any better thing of the country. Even they are so much 'hateful and one-eyed' as they could not notice any good jobs of the government in the last more than a decade, the minister explained,” he said.

Noting that BNP's major failure is to fail in learning lessons from the mistake, Quader said Awami League is more popular than BNP as it can boldly face the wrong to correct himself.

“Peoples could never think BNP as an alternative to Awami League in power politics,” he said.
