BNP champion of snatching people’s rights: Quader

Popular News

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) is the champion in snatching people’s rights.

“BNP is now raising voice for human rights despite the fact that the party is the champion in snatching people’s rights. There is no similarity between their words and work,” he said in a statement.

The AL spokesperson made the statement, lambasting anti-government propaganda spread by BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and other leaders.

Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said the BNP speaks of opinion polls to test popularity, but they don’t have confidence in it. Even the party is afraid of participating in polls.

“Despite being elected as a Member of Parliament in the last general election, the BNP secretary general did not join the parliament. He cheated the people by doing this,” he said.

Mentioning that the BNP leaders talk about democracy, but they bear autocratic and anti-state spirit in their minds, Quader urged the people to remain alert to the inconsistent statements, propaganda and ill-politics of the BNP leaders.

Replying to an allegation from BNP leaders that the ruling Awami League has been isolated from people since 1971, Quader termed the remark as a nonsensical talk. 

“All the great things of the country were achieved by the leadership of Awami League, the party that led the country’s liberation war in 1971 and the 1952 Language Movement,” he said.

On the other hand, the BNP is an evil force which started politics in the country by grabbing the state power and destroying the spirit of the great Liberation War, he said, adding that the party along with the communal forces is still involved in hatching anti-state conspiracies. Since its birth, the BNP has been isolated from the people. The intrigue is its political tool.

Quader said the BNP leaders are telling imaginary stories to hide their frustration, but these stories do not touch the hearts of the people.
