BNP never behaves responsibly: Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday said political evil force Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) never behaves in a responsible way. 

“All political parties play a responsible role in the democratic state system in dealing with crises, but the nation has never witnessed any responsible behaviour of the political evil force named Bangladesh Nationalist Party,” he said in a statement.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said the BNP always tries to mislead the people by carrying out attacks on the stronghold of national unity at critical moments and fish in muddy water.

Mentioning that the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war has put the whole world in a crisis amid the fallout of coronavirus pandemic,  the minister said Bangladesh’s position is quite good in the reports prepared based on various international studies.

“Despite this global crisis, the position of Bangladesh is relatively better than other countries, as was during the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said. AL spokesperson urged the BNP to work for the welfare of the country and its people amid the ongoing global crisis.

The BNP leaders are constantly telling shameless falsehood and making provocative statements to hinder the united efforts of the people to deal with the crisis, he said.

Responding to a remark made by BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Quader said the BNP has turned into a pessimistic political party failing to win people’s confidence.

“So, the BNP leaders are constantly making mockery of the nation by telling the stories of despair,” he said.

The AL general secretary said the BNP leaders are doing this very consciously to create panic among the people and destroy social order.

At the same time, they are trying to create anti-government sentiments by misleading the people, he said.

In fact, it is indicative of the BNP's desperate politics of making the peace-loving people self-destructive to gain its wicked political interests, Quader added.
