Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Monday said the Awami League is the last resort of people’s trust and dependence as its root is profoundly deepened in the soil of this country.
He came up with the remark while speaking at a press briefing on contemporary issues at his Secretariat office in Dhaka.
Quader said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir recently commented that the AL would not get passage of escaping if the country’s people wake up.
The Awami League and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have affiliations with all the achievements of this country and the happiness and sorrows of the people, so those who have the habit of fleeing away talk about escaping, he said, adding that the people are the strength and last resort of the Awami League.
Quader said Mirza Fakhrul should not forget that many BNP leaders fled to London by giving undertakings and the country’s people know it well. “If you have the courage, bring back those corrupt leaders from abroad,” he said.
Since the country’s people woke up, the faces of BNP leaders were unmasked and they faced defeats in recent elections, he said.
The AL general secretary said as the pseudo politics of BNP is very clear to the people, they do not have trust and faiths in the party.
The AL wants BNP to be a strong party as an opposition one, he said, adding if the opposition plays a strong and responsible role, the path to democracy becomes smoother and stronger .
Coming down heavily on BNP for its ill-politics, Quader said the strength of the BNP is to create anarchy in the country in collusion with the anti-national and communal forces.
Earlier in the day, Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Vikram Kumar Doraiswami paid a courtesy call on the Road Transport and Bridges Minister at his Secretariat office.
