Won’t tolerate indecent slogans against PM

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday warned Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) will have to face dire consequences for chanting impolite slogans against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.  

“Chanting the heinous slogan -- let roar the instrument of August 15 carnage once again, BNP proved that it has an infamous killer character. The party will have to face dire consequences for chanting such heinous slogans,” he said.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, gave the warning while addressing a press briefing at his official residence on parliament premises in the capital.

The AL spokesperson’s remark came up at the press briefing as leaders of BNP and its associated bodies are using such offensive words against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at different rallies and public functions.

Quader said BNP leaders and their collaborators are not showing any decency and courtesy while delivering speeches.

“The BNP and its allies are creating trouble in the name of rallies in various places, including the National Press Club. They chanted nasty slogans against the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, which is not acceptable in any way,” he said.

Replying to a statement made by BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that no election will be held under the incumbent government and election will be held under a neutral government, Quader said the people of Bangladesh do not accept the autocratic and irresponsible remarks of any person or group.

“BNP founder Ziaur Rahman made a joke with the nation through imposing curfew democracy by trampling all the democratic culture and democratic rights of the people of the country. At the same time, he violated the constitution and the law by occupying the posts of army chief and president,” he said.

“BNP is maintaining the legacy of evil politics. The BNP leaders get irritated whenever they hear about any law, rule or policy,” he said.

Pointing the finger at Mirza Fakhrul, Quader said that election will be held under independent election commission, not under any government.
