BNP forced B Chy to leave Bangabhaban, says Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday said BNP had forced its elected President AQM Badruddoza Chow-dhury, commonly known as B Chowdhury, to flee away, reports BSS.

“B Chowdhury is still alive; the BNP had forced its elected President B Chowdhury to flee away along rail line. President like B Chowdhury was not able to tolerate. They (BNP) wanted Iajuddin like one,” he said.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, made the remarks while speaking at a discussion, organised at Krishibid Institution Bangladesh (KIB) auditorium on the occasion of Krishibid Day.

He said the AL nominated a well-educated, honest, efficient and skilled person for the post of the country’s President.                “We did not nominate a person who is like Iajuddin Ahmed for the post of the President.

We did not nominate a person from evil force who is an anti-liberation one and believes in terrorism and arson terrors,” he said.

The AL general secretary said the BNP started conflicts again while the BNP men have started arson terrorism in several districts. BNP is creating obstacle to the Awami

League’s peace rallies through arson terrorism, he added.

“You live in this city, tell us - where have we obstructed them (BNP) They are holding meetings, gatherings and marches. Have their progarmmes been halted anywhere’ Quader questioned.

He said the BNP carried out attacks on the AL’s peace rallies. “Through terrorism carried out in 2013-14, the BNP proved that they were neo Razakars. They didn’t let us hold rallies while many of our leaders and workers were beat up and injured on the streets,” he said.
