Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader said that Oikyafront’s conspiracy tool may hit again. If they guard the polling stations, Awami League must protect the voting centers.

He urged their party leaders and activists to get united and protect the voting centers on December 30 as their party has no alternative to win.

Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, came up with the comment on Thursday while speaking at a joint meeting of Swechchhasebak League at Bangabandhu Avenue.

He said, “There’s no alternative for us to win. BNP can’t turn out to be victorious in the polls as it couldn’t win the movement.”

He urged their party leaders and workers not to be complacent about coming back to power in the next election. “Work together for ensuring the victory of all the candidates of our party and alliance partners.”

The ruling party leader also warned that a terrible situation will be created like 2001 one if Awami League gets defeated in the election. “If we want to avoid such an awful situation, we all must remain united.”

He said they are going to start giving the final nomination letters to their candidates today (Thursday) and the process will be completed by Friday.

Quader claimed that they have already reached an understating with their alliance partners over the seat sharing issue.

He urged their party and alliance leaders and workers to accept the final nominations of the alliance for the sake of their greater interests.

The ruling party leader also said there is no reason for having any misunderstanding among their alliance partners. “We sat in talks repeatedly, and we could nominate the good candidates from the alliance.”

Quader also hoped that those who will get nominations from the Grand Alliance will come out successful in most of the seats.
