Jashore rally shows people’s confidence in govt: Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said the large gathering of people in Jashore’s public meeting on Thursday has once again proved that they have full confidence in Sheikh Hasina’s government.

He said this in a press release signed by Awami League office secretary Barrister Biplab Barua on Friday.

Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, condemned and protested BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s ‘false, baseless, purposeful’ comments.

"Mirza Fakhrul and other BNP leaders are making delirious statements after not getting people’s response in the anti-government movement. Yesterday’s public meeting in Jashore proved once again that the countrymen have confidence in the government of Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina," he said.

The Awami League general secretary also said BNP leaders are hatching deep conspiracy against the country and trying to create an unstable situation by spreading propaganda and creating panic among people.

"BNP is desperate to seize power by any means and that’s why its leaders have taken the path of unethical politics and terrorist tactics," he said in the statement.

Quader said the BNP is organising rallies all over the country every day and at the same time, it is seeking political sympathy from its foreign masters by alleging that the government is creating obstacle to their rallies.

BNP leaders are able to speak lies every day against the government in the name of holding rallies as a free democratic environment is prevailing in Bangladesh, he said.

Quader said since there is free media and freedom of speech in the country, the BNP can continue its politics capitalising on media.

"Bangabandhu’s daughter believes that the country’s people are the AL’s strength and the source of power," the Awami League general secretary said, adding that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina never does politics for the lust of power.
