Ruling Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday said that the Bangladesh Nationalist Party had resorted to unethical politics and the path of terrorists as the party was desperate to seize power in any way.
‘BNP is ddesperate to seize power by any means and that’s why its leaders have taken the path of unethical politics and terrorist tactics,’ he said in a statement.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said that the BNP leaders were hatching deep conspiracy against the country and trying to create an unstable situation in the country too through spreading propaganda, creating panic among people and terrorist acts.
The AL general secretary said that the BNP leaders, including its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, were talking perplexed after not getting people’s response to their anti-government movement.
‘A public meeting ( of AL) held in Jashore yesterday proved once again that the people of Bangladesh have full confident in the government of Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina,’ he said.
But, he said, the BNP leaders are carrying out their constant falsehood to get political benefits by spreading fabricated information and creating confusion through rumours.
Quader said that the BNP was holding rallies in different parts of the country every day and at the same time, it was seeking political sympathy from its foreign masters by raising allegations that the government was creating obstacle to their rallies.
As a free democratic environment is prevailing in Bangladesh, the BNP leaders were able to speak lie every day against the government in the name of holding rallies, he said.
He said that since there were free media and freedom of speech in the country, the BNP could continue its politics capitalising on media.
Quader said that, in fact, the BNP was the main obstacle to the spirit of the country’s Liberation War and democratic ideals and values.
