Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said that BNP’s involvement in the gruesome grenade attacks on the AL rally on August 21, 2004, is true like daylight and none can hide the truth.

He was addressing a virtual discussion om Sunday, joining it from his official residence on parliament premises, arranged by Southeast University marking the National Mourning Day. 

“BNP cannot conceal the truth by hiding their heads in the sand like ostrich. BNP’s involvement in the August 21 grenade attack is true like daylight and they will not be able to hide it,” Quader said.

He said BNP gets angered when it faces the truth as patrons of evils of darkness cannot accept it. 

About the resuming of educational institutions, the minister said the premier and the education minister will take decision to this end after reviewing the situation.  

He reiterated his call to all to follow the health guidelines and maintain social or physical distancing properly to make the coronavirus preventive efforts stronger.

Southeast University Vice-Chancellor Prof AFM Mafizul Islam chaired the virtual discussion while Bangladesh Bank former Governor Dr Atiur Rahman and the university’s board of trustees Chairman Md Rezaul Karim addressed it among others.
