DHAKA: Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader alleged that BNP wanted to create chaos centering on the Mujib Year.
He was addressing a press conference after holding a view-exchange with Dhaka City South unit of AL ahead of Mujib Year at the party president’s Dhanmondi political office in the capital on Thursday (March 5).
Obaidul Quader said: “BNP is now doing ‘issue-based’ politics after losing public support and failing in election as well as movement. If anything occurs in the country, they want to make it an issue to wage movement.”
The road transport and bridges minister said the government has all-out preparations for the celebration of Mujib Year marking the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Quader said those who became leaders of BNP after its formation were the masterminds of Bangabandhu assassination and that is why BNP could not accept the father of the nation.
But BNP could not tarnish the achievements of Bangabandhu after doing all sorts of conspiracy, he added.
Awami League Advisory Council member and Prime Minister’s Political Affairs Adviser HT Imam, AL Presidium members Jahangir Kabir Nanak and Abdur Rahman, Organizing Secretary Mirza Azam, Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua, Deputy Office Secretary Sayem Khan, Dhaka City South AL President Abu Ahmed Mannafi, General Secretary Humayun Kabir, Jubo Mahila League President Najma Akhter and General Secretary Apu Ukil were present on the occasion.
