Obaidul Quader said, “As the people rejected the BNP’s movement, they also rejected them in the election. Let them fight, let them do it. We do not have any headache. I think the country’s people also do not care about them.”
He said, “Awami League will work for the people with the ideology of Bangabandhu. Our adjuration- we will always work for the country’s welfare, for the country’s people.”
“Those leaders who said ‘Bangabandhu did not want independence’- I think that they do not have any respect towards Bangabandhu. I do not even need to think.”
