AL to win next JS polls, hopes Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said they are hopeful of securing a win in the next parliamentary election by facing all the conspiracies against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

"We are hopeful of securing a win in the next general election by facing all conspiracies against Sheikh Hasina," he said.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said this while addressing the triennial council session of the Gazipur unit of AL, joining the programme virtually from his official residence on Thursday.

The minister called upon all leaders and activists of the party to remain united by mitigating internal feuds.

"When Sheikh Hasina returned home after the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, she took an oath to unite the feud-torn Awami League by visiting every corner of the country despite many obstacles. She made it possible by trying the war criminals in a bid to free the country from stigma," said Quader.

"With the return of Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh is now a wonder of the world in terms of development and achievement," he said.

The Padma Bridge has been built with the county's own funds, foiling all conspiracies, Quader said when asked about the opening of the bridge.

"The Padma Bridge will open to traffic next month. The date will be announced soon," he added.

In response to a statement by Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Quader said that the construction work has been completed with absolute transparency.

"They (BNP) are jealous as the construction work of the bridge has been completed successfully," he said.

At the function, AL president and Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque, AL presidium member and agriculture minister Abdur Razzaque, organising secretary Mirza Azam, women's affairs secretary Meher Afroze Chumki, and state minister for youth and sports Zahid Ahsan Russel, among others, addressed the function.
